How to Make Dreaming of Spring Lavender Cupcakes


  • 1Infuse the milk with the lavender buds over night in fridge.
    *Mix batter and frosting milk in one cup and than just divide before baking.Strain out buds before using.

    Mix flour, sugar, baking powder and butter until a "sandy" consistency.Add lavender infused milk until well mixed.
    Beat in egg and mix well.
  • 2Bake at 325 degrees 20 - 25 mins.Cool

    For the frosting:

    Cream butter and sugar...set aside.
    Heat (lavender infused)milk in saucepan and slowly add cornstarch a tablespoon at a time over low heat . Stir constantly until thickened. Cool till barely warm...
    about 5 - 10 mins.
    Add a small portion of the cornstarch mixture to sugar mixture using a electric mixer. Continue adding and whipping till all milk mixtuer is gone....whip till fluffy and sugar granules are gone.
    I tint the icing with a little bit of blue,red and yellow food coloring to make it a light lavender color.
    These are so good!!!
