Easter Cakes (Lavender Cupcakes)

I hope that all of my lovely readers had a fantastic Easter. We really enjoyed our Easter. It was really nice for all of us to just have some time off and be at home together. We've enjoyed things like pancake brunches and crafts with the girls. We also redecorated our kitchen over Easter! (I'll try to post pictures of it later because it is so cute.)
We had some people coming over on Easter Monday for dinner, and Miriam really wanted to make "Easter Cakes". So we made some lavender cupcakes. The lavender just seemed appropriate for Easter--so light and delicate, the flowery taste just seems like spring and new life. Anya helped me to make the cake (she loves mixing), and Miriam helped to decorate them (she loves sprinkles). They are a great desert because they are so light that they are almost refreshing...except for the buttercream icing I put on top, obviously. I just did a simple buttercream with a splash of vanilla extract and food colouring to make it lavender coloured.

  1. These cakes look so fantastic! As soon as I clicked into your blog I was welcomed to lots of Lavender! Made me feel very soothed! :)

  2. Wow, these looks amazing! I wouldn't have the patience to do them but I so wish I did!

  3. Thanks for your comments. I love using lavender (and yes, it is very soothing :)

    The nice thing about this recipe is that it doesn't take any patience. It's one of the easiest cake recipes I've ever used, and turns out every time.
