Feeling like a true earth mother, Upper Cut Cake gal J, harvested the lavender in her garden this month.
Having never baked with it before, she started with a simple little cupcake. Pairing the lavender with zesty lemon made for a delicately fresh treat for the other mummies at baby A's play date.
In fact, J was so pleased with the combination she has a little bundle of lavender hanging up to dry in her kitchen and has made some rather refreshing lemon and lavender yoghurt ice cream (experimentation with yoghurt ice cream is becoming so intense there may be a need for a new blog!)
