      Unfortunately this did not work for me at all. The violet petals repel liquids so the sugar syrup just sat in large droplets on the petals, rather than coating them. (I noticed this also when rinsing them with water). After several days of drying, parts of the flowers still had globs of syrup and parts were dry. Maybe there is a trick or a technique that I should have known?

      Great method for candying violets. The only change I made was to dip the still wet violets (johnny jump ups in my picture) in edible glitter. Thanks!
