    Glori-B's Note:

    Ridiculously simple preparation with incredibly elegant flavor. Like a vacation to a slower, more gentle time. Just picture yourself on the porch of an old Victorian mansion. This cake is lovely with a cup of tea, or some lavender lemonade.

      Made this today for a family gathering and it was a huge hit! Using the Betty Crocker pound cake mix, I added only a teaspoon of dried lavender blossoms and three drops of organic lavender oil. It had enough lavender taste for the women, but not enough to scare off the men! The only change that I would make is the elimination of the grenadine; it made the frosting too pink. I'd use 2 T heavy cream with the chips. I did use lavender colored sprinkles, which would look even better with the white frosting. Thank you so much for posting this!
