Method

Line the bottom and sides of a Charlotte mould with thin paper then cover this with very dry and very small meringues. Fill with Crème Chantilly flavoured with vanilla and containing some crystallized violets.

When the Charlotte is demoulded, decorate the top with some nice crystallized violets, sticking them on with sugar cooked to the hard crack stage.

This sweet should be served cold but not frozen.
