Easter just around the corner and we're ready to celebrate with these delicious lavender cupcakes with Lavender Earl Grey Frosting!

Add one teaspoon ground tea to the frosting mix and mix until blended. Frost your cooled Lavender White Cake cupcakes. It would also make a great frosting for cookies!
I was craving chocolate and began my hunt for a delicious looking chocolate cookie recipe. I came across Christi's recipe from, Love From the Oven it looked so yummy with bits of chocolate chunks and marshmallows oozing out of them. So of course I couldn't resist using our Norwood Farm gourmet Lavender Hot Chocolate Mix!
The Lavender Hot Chocolate gives it just a hint of lavender. If you find you want more lavender taste you can add our Lavender Extract in place of vanilla extract.
Lavender Soda Cake
Can't get much easier than 2 ingredient cake! No oil, no eggs you only need a basic cake mix and soda of your choice. We chose to use a lavender soda and a white cake mix. Although, the sky is the limit with the variety of cakes you can make. For example another idea is to use a box of lemon cake mix and lavender soda to create a lemon lavender cake mix!
Frosting choices can all vary according to your preference as well. We used a basic cream cheese with our Lavender Extract but you could easily use a lemon frosting or a basic white frosting with our lavender extract. Garnish with fresh lavender or our dried Lavender Culinary Bud to complete your cake.
Our farm fresh dried culinary lavender is grown organically without use of pesticides, hericides or chemicals. We take pride in the way we harvesting, drying and debuding by hand on our small family run farm in Tualatin, Oregon, This helps to insure that you are getting product that is at its peak freshness.
Try our culinary Lavender in place of rosemary in your cooking, grilling or baking. Tastes fantastic in dressings, cookies, lemonade, desserts, rubs, and on its on as a tea or as a garnish. So versatile in both savory or sweet dishes.
Our Lavender Extract can be used like you would vanilla extract. Although our extract is highly concentrated we suggest you use half the amount until you find just the amount you like. The extract can add the unexpected surprise to desserts, frostings, whip cream or venture into new realms of culinary surprises. Lavender has the unique ability to blend with fine chocolate, harmonize with the delicate flavors of fresh fruit such lemons, peaches, and berries or heighten the taste of honey or virtually any decadent dessert.
