       Yield: 1 servings
  
       1 tb Powdered gum arabic
       1 tb Rose water
            Violet blooms
            Superfine sugar
  
   NOTE: Both gum arabic and rose water are available
   from drugstores or cake decorating supply stores.
   
   Dissolve the gum arabic in the rose water and leave
   until the solution becomes a paste.  Using a small
   brush, paint each violet all over with the solution,
   then dip the flowers in superfine sugar.  Leave to dry
   on a wire rack in a warm place.  Store the petals in
   an airtight container, and use them on desserts as an
   edible garnish.
