Notes

I adapted this recipe to use in my Mother's Day Cupcake class I taught a couple of weeks ago. The aroma is fabulous with two really well-paired flavors. Enjoy!

Check out my post under fruit flavored frostings. The lavender sugar is just 2 cups of granulated sugar to 1/4 cup of lavender buds. Store in a jar for 2 weeks. If you want to use the buds in the cupcakes, grind it in a spice grinder or use a mortar and pestle to grind them up. Enjoy!

Could you give directions on "lavender sugar" and limoncello frosting?
