    • I am curious, since using an egg white wash, do you have to bake the flowers to be safe??

      No, egg white wash is safe to eat in small moderations. You could eat all the flowers with the few eggs you use and be safe. It’s like a boxer drinking a few raw eggs each morning for breakfast…both safe and healthy.

      Just make sure no one has egg allergies before served these treats. 😃 Hope everyone has a Blessed Ostara 2017
