This is essentially a vanilla cupcake with lavender-honey frosting. If you can find lavender honey, it will add even more flavor..

This was a lovely recipe though I did make some changes. First of all, I couldn't find lavender flowers and so I used organic lavender tea instead but in smaller amounts as it had a very intense smell. Secondly I blended the sugar with a little lavender to add some flavour to the cupcake too and finally I omitted the blue colouring because I knew it would put off my kids! The final result was a delicious rich buttery cupcake with a light lavender and honey flavour. Everyone who tried it, loved it. Thanks for posting.
