Sugared fruit is an easy way to dress up your afternoon tea party or holiday table. I found these little lady apples and baby grapes, which are completely adorable as a decorative centerpiece, but you can use whatever fruit you want.

Wash and dry the lady apples and baby grapes. Attach a skewer or toothpick to the fruit.

Over the bowl containing the egg whites, apply a thin layer of the egg whites all over the fruit using a pastry brush.

In a separate bowl with superfine sugar, use a spoon or sprinkle on the sugar as you rotate the lady apple. Shake off any excess sugar. Keep rotating and adding sugar until you get the desired look.

After coating the apples and grapes in sugar, place them on a plate or parchment paper and let sit for an hour to completely dry.

The outer sugar layer will harden and at this point, arrange the fruit. TA DA!!

    How long do they stay like that? I mean, does the sugar "melt" after a will or….?
    They look beautiful 🙂

    It this for eating (since it has raw eggs on it)? Or just as a nice looking centerpiece?
