If you have ever tried candied or crystalized violet fragments, did you like the taste? I got some to use on eclairs, and I think the scent is heavenly, but it has a slightly soapy taste to me. I wondered if it was one of those things like cilantro, where you and your taste buds either love it or hate it.
My eclairs are filled with vanilla pastry cream, and topped with a lavender (colored) poured fondant. I love the look of a few of these violet fragments scattered on top, but just not sure how many people would enjoy the taste.
