This is a tedious project, but fun to have as an
edible decoration for parties or special desserts.
First Helena got the job of picking and then
washing all the nice viola flowers.
(Washing is a must since ours are under the bird
bath and ahem…)
After a thorough drying, you paint them with egg white.
This is a tedious process so it's nice to have a big
sister along to help--Emily made herself available
for this project.
After painting, you carefully dust them with
sugar and let dry thoroughly.
The finished products--these can be stored in an
air-tight container for months.
They are quite pretty and tasty too!
