  • Pour mixture into a convenient cup so it will be convenient for you to add it to your beating egg whites. While your mixer is on, little by little mix in all of the mixture. Keep it on high speed until it will start making shapes on top.
    Whisked Zefir mixture until stiff peaks
  • Place mixture in plastic bag or cake decorating bag and make flowers out of it. (I used wax paper and covered my counter tops with it, that’s where I put all flowers) Leave them to dry for 8 hours.

  • Sprinkle them with powder sugar. Lift each with knife and stick 2 together. (If they still stick together, you can sprinkle them more)
