Lavender Frosting paired with Lemon Cupcakes is a Delectable Combination

Do you love Lavender? Lavender scented laundry detergent or bubble bath probably comes to your mind first. However, a new frontier for me is Culinary Lavender.

I have heard of lavender cake and other desserts with Lavender but had never tried one. Of course, out of curiosity I had to try to make something.

I found the Culinary Lavender at Williams-Sonoma and off I went. After reading and investigating flavor combinations I decided to go with Lavender frosting and Lemon Cupcakes.

One important detail to share is : Use Lavender Sparingly! Lavender can be very strong and overwhelming; a little goes a long way. For the best results seep 2 Tbsp. Half n Half and 1 Tbsp. Lavender in the refrigerator for 8- 10 hours before using. Drain the seeds and use the liquid in lieu of the milk in your favorite buttercream recipe. Add Wilton violet food coloring for some color. That’s it! Simple and delicious.
