To Patty Cakes and Magnolia Blossom AND everyone else....

My Culinary Grade Lavender arrived yesterday in the mail and I finally got to make those Lemon Lavender Cupcakes I last blogged about. Was the wait worth it? Absolutely! I ate about 1/4 of the batter and then 3 of the baked cupcakes. They really are that yummy.

The hardest part of the recipe? Locating the stinkin' Lavender. I finally ordered it from Mt. Hood, Oregon Lavender Farms. No one in my area had any. I checked with every single grocery store and speciality storeĀ in my town and all the nurseries. I didn't know it was that unusual an ingredient.

But, alas, I have my lavender and will be making everything I can using my precious little 6oz pouch I paid $5.95 for plus $6.95 shipping. I'll be looking for other recipes on AR; but of course would love to get some from you all.

Thank you again Patty Cakes and Magnolia Blossom for your help. Candice in Oregon

There is a lavender farm in south Texas my husband and I went to. They have a website and there are recipes on it. Check it out! chappelhilllavender.com. They also sell culinary lavender. I don't know if King Arthur Flour Co. sells it or not but they have some very cool baking items as well.

Congrats Candice, they look great! What's your next cupcake going to be? Anything spicy or unusual?

LCook: Heading over to the chappelhilllavender.com website. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll keep you posted on my next lavender creation. Cupcakes, however, are my true passion right now, so....... Magnolia Blosson: I will be trying the "Brownie Batter + Cupcake = The SECOND BEST cupcake. Ever" recipe on AR. It just looks so very scrumptious. I will, of course post pictures. I'd love to come up with a cupcake featuring orange and sweet potatoes.... just thinking

It looks to me like they were worth the wait! I'm glad you finally got to make them, and more importantly, taste them! Very nice photography, as well.

Candice - I like the idea of orange & sweet potatoes!

Oooh, that looks scrumptious! I am very fortunate, friends here in our area own a lavender farm and I would probably be able to get plenty from them. Not sure on the cost, but not having to pay more for shipping than the actual product would certainly be a blessing! Looking forward to reading about your next cupcake adventure. I also think orange and sweet potato sounds delicious. And, just in time for that most awesome Autumn time of year :)
