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

I loved these cupcakes! I used lavender that was sent to me by my friend Rita. I also used a buttercream icing, decorating them with a lavender sprig. They got rave reviews all around! Made for ZWT 3 :)

These were made for a picnic today, and they were gorgeous! I used lavender from my garden and made them in a mini muffin pan - managing to get 18 smaller cupcakes out of the mixture. I would have prefered a light butter cream icing, as I found the egg white and sugar glaze just a bit too sweet - but that is just personal taste! However, these were PERFECT for an easy to pack dessert. Thanks Shannon W! made for ZWT3.
