Toulouse Violets for Friends

We're having some friends over for lunch today. It's all very informal and everyone's bringing a contribution of food. Having bought the cake stand on Friday, I had to make cup cakes today!

I've decorated them with traditional Toulousain violets, grown in the fields around the city and crystalised with mimosa seeds:

Have a look at the lovely blog An Enchanted Cottage, which has a fantastic first birthday giveaway!

I just found your crystalised violets ~ oh how fantastic!
I am quite partial to violet creams, and anything violet really. My sister took a trip to south France last year and brought back violet liqueur ~ delicious!
I really must go just in order to stock up on all things violet!
