My mom's birthday was right around the corner. She loves lavender, so i decided to make lavender cupcakes . Using box cake mix mixed with essence of lavender taste ( found at local cake supply store) .
I found edible lavender there as well. I added 2 drops of lavender essence and 1 flower.
The frosting was simple and easy.
1 package of cream cheese (soften)
1 "liliac" color food dye
4 cups of powdered sugar (sift first)
2 tablespoons of milk
1 teaspoons of vanilla
Mix cream cheese and food dye together. Slowly add the powdered sugar and vanilla in slowly. You might need milk but its not necessary.
