Arwen If you just added the lavender there would no be enough room. And there is the getting the flowers back out again. Trust me it is easier to pour the finished product from a wider bottle. Like a mason jar than it is to dig a flower out of a curve in the original bottle.

As for Lavender icing you can add to any vanilla frosting mix or homemade. It makes great frosting for inbetweeen two cookies.

Never even seen burgundy wine powder so I have not a clue what to do with it. Sorry.

You can make about anything you want from rose pedals. Tea, a additive to a green salad,cookies, teacakes, it even makes great jelly and jam. in other words about everything you can do with lavender. Plus with both you can make lotions, skin creams and even perfume

I look forward to trying this, but as someone asked can you share recipes for lavendar flavored icing. I am using dried lavendar I just purchased from a spice store in my neighborhood (along with burgundy wine powder and rose petals) and I am wondering what to do with them. A question, couldn't you just put the lavendar in the bottle of vodka without changing the bottle? Just curious, never did this before. Thanks,

your welcome. It takes a little longer than some soaps to set up but the wait is worth it
