Crystallised Violas

It was my Father-in-Law's birthday today. My Chocolate fudge cupcakes are a family favourite. I have been wanting to crystallise some flowers for cupcake toppers for a while now. I think they look quite sweet.

I now have about 24 plants in my garden to give me a good supply. These are Violas and they come in the most stunning array of colours.

Make sure you get the spray-free variety from your local plant shop, brush with egg white, sprinkle with a little caster sugar (I added a tiny bit of edible glitter to my sugar) and leave to dry.
