Lavender Flower Cupcakes

On Monday I took a short road trip to Edenvale to order my new cupcake stands – promise to post these in my next couple of posts.  While I was there I visited the Chocolate Den in Edenvale and this was a blast from the past for me as it was my most frequented shops about 15 years ago when I was making and selling chocolate lollies.  It was brilliant to be back in their newly revamped shop, yet another Aladdin’s Cave for me!   On my to-do list for 2012 is to explore different flavours for my cupcakes and I was so pleased to see that the Chocolate Den had a range of different and yummy smelling flavourings.  Needless to say a few of these somehow made their way into my shopping basket and I couldn’t wait to try them out.

I baked these lavender cupcakes for our first day back at scrapping at the Memory Shed and the girls were happy to be my tasters once again and everyone agreed that these cupcakes were really tasty.  They had a subtle taste of lavender in the cupcakes itself  and then a creamy lavender taste in the icing as I added lavender petals to the icing.  I made pretty lavender coloured sugar paste flowers as cupcake toppers.
