Gourmet Candied Violas Fresh Cut Crystallized Last Lasting
This order is for ten (10) Crystallized Violas Crystallized in sugar - in purples
I shouldn't take the credit for the beauty the good Lord put into these flowers. I am just helping the beauty to last longer and to share it with you. Even after I crystallize them, their wonderful perfume fills my room. They are not grown in toxins and I clean them well before getting to work on them so even thought they are edible flowers, it would be a shame not to save for the next time you are feeling pride in your baked goods or need a favor for a special occasion. Just keep the sugar and container I send them in and they will last a good year if kept out of the sunlight and at room
You will notice in the drop down box that there are 2 types of violas. One for cakes and one for drinks. The flowers that are needed float on drink take a different process because they have to be light enough to float for long periods of time on top of the surface of the beverage. The heavily crystallized flowers will sink but are appropriate for cakes and are also edible.
I have added viola leaves to the drop down box to be used for decoration only. They are not toxic but apparently are not tasty-to say the least. They are pretty dark green rounded leaves with serrated edges and at about 2 1/2 inches wide by 1 inch wide including the stem.
They take days and days to make and dry, even though I have a dehydrator and the shade available will always be shown in the photo. These are shades of blue and lavender. I will ship them to you preserved in raw sugar, each in their own container. You will have to tip it on it's side and gently remove the flower from the sugar, give it a little tap and it's ready to show off at your party, The violas are very sweet tasting are about 3/4 to 1 1/4 inches high and they make a beautiful display together on your cake or cupcakes.
If you need some crystallized edible greens, just convo me and I can do that too. I can do herb leaves and they will help authenticate the flowers.
I need a weeks lead time for your order but that allows for problems in availability and your order may arrive sooner
