Tammie Nestor entered her lemon cupcake recipe in The Herald-Mail's inaugural cupcake contest. What really made it stand out was the crystallized pansy on each cupcake. Nestor said crystallized flowers can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container in keep them in a cool place — not a refrigerator — for as long as a month. Making crystallized flowers is simple. Brush egg white over the petals, then sprinkle granulated sugar over the wet egg. Let dry. Don't use flowers from the flower shop, Nestor emphasized, because you don't know if pesticides or other poisons have been used.
