Lavender Buttercream Frosting Cupcakes

We found a lovely recipe for lavender cupcakes with buttercream frosting that would pair perfectly with our Lavender Buttercream Collection! It's so easy to make, and these cute cupcakes are the perfect way to celebrate the beginning of Spring!


Lavender Cupcakes for Spring


For lavender cupcake batter:

  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ⅛ tsp salt
  • 12 tbsp butter unsalted, softened
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp dried lavender
  • Cooking Spray

For buttercream frosting:

  • 2 sticks butter softened
  • 4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp milk
  • 2 small drops purple gel food coloring
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp dried lavender for topping

Lavender Buttercream Frosting


For lavender cupcakes:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the wet ingredients (butter, egg whites, milk) for the cupcake batter.
  3. In a separate larger bowl, mix together the dry ingredients for the cupcake batter (flour, sugar, baking powder, lavender, salt).
  4. Mix together the dry and wet ingredients to form the cupcake batter. Use an electric mixer to make this easier, if you have one.
  5. Spray a cupcake tin with cooking spray. Pour batter into cupcake tins. Bake for 12-18 minutes, until a sharp knife inserted into a cupcake comes out clean.

For buttercream frosting:

  1. Before decorating cupcakes, ensure they are cool.
  2. Using an electric mixer, start beating butter, sugar, and milk on medium speed. Gradually increase the speed to high, and you will see your buttercream starting to take form. It is ready once it forms still peaks.
  3. Color buttercream with purple gel food coloring, then fold in honey.
  4. Using a piping bag, frost each cupcake. Top with dried lavender and serve.
