    Shannon Cooks's Note:

    The lavender in these cupcakes is understated yet elegant and thoroughly unique. If the frosting part of the recipe does not appeal to you, you may substitute your favorite buttercream frosting instead.

      I added a tablespoon of fresh ground lavender (which is why the frosting is green.) I also cooked it just a bit because I didn't want to eat raw egg (the little white bits in the frosting.) I really loved these because I like lavender. I wouldn't suggest people that don't like lavender or are "meat and potatoes" type people try these - I gave some to my parents and they said they tasted like perfume & shaving cream :-/

      Oh Shannon, such a special and attractive recipe. Made this for a bar-b-q party we had for family and friends and used lavender from my garden. I followed the directions exactly except made them in mini-muffin pans so everyone would have a taste and they were almost gone before the meal started. They were so easy and looked so elegant on the serving table. Everyone at the party - men, women AND picky kids loved them. Thanks for a simple but elegant recipe
