Since violets are edible you could make a very pretty plate of pancakes or waffle by sprinkling violets blossoms over and then drizzle with the pretty violet syrup.
You can also use the syrup in icings, lemonades and ice cream. Lavender and Lovage shares the recipe for this beautiful violet syrup. It always feels like such an accomplishment when you go out and forage for wild things and then bring them home and actually make something from them.
