I have never tries , but if you put youur question in Google, most answers are " Yes-Pansies are indeed edible flowers. They are often used to decorate cakes or salads.".There you go.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Edible Flowers Offer a Sweet Taste from the Garden
Members of the viola family, from pansies and johnny-jump-ups to violets, are a sweet edible flower with a hint of wintergreen. Add individual petals to salads, tea sandwiches or cheese; top cupcakes with whole flowers. Candied violets have long held a place of honor in the dessert world, but plain violets can also be added to sugar to infuse it with a delicate flavor.
Window boxes are a lovely and effective means of growing small edible crops like herbs and greens, especially in urban settings with little or no yard. Pictured here are pansies, which have edible flowers.
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to Southern California Gardener's October Checklist
This window box spilleth over with pansies and Johnny-jump-ups (Viola). White English daisies provide a splash in the middle of the planting. Tip: Try some Johnny-jump-up blooms in your salad for color, flavor and a conversation starter.
Jocelyn H. Chilvers added this to Rocky Mountain Gardener's April Checklist
Plant cold-tolerant annuals in containers as a colorful welcome to spring. Good flower choices include pansies, violas, English daisies, snapdragons and sweet alyssum. Prep any previously used containers by cleaning them thoroughly with a solution of one part bleach to nine parts hot water. Fill your pots with a growing medium made specifically for container gardens, one that's lightweight and well draining yet moisture retentive.

A plant with a dead center or a lack of blooms last year may indicate that it needs to be divided. Here's how. Use a sharp spade to dig out the plant with as much of its root system as possible (6 to 12 inches beyond the drip line). Remove some of the soil from the root ball and pull or chop it into large sections that include both stems and roots. Replant the divisions — or share them with a friend — and water thoroughly.
