I was inspired to make these cupcakes from a recipe in a gorgeous cookbook called Layered! For some reason, cupcakes always seem to go over better than a full cake at work. I think its because cupcakes are grab 'n go and its too hard to locate a clean plate and a real fork, haha. Anyways, Happy Birthday Amy! These lil babies are for you!
Citrus olive oil cake, with a lavender simple syrup, topped with lavender cream cheese frosting! I was hesitant about olive oil for a cupcake but HELLO. DO IT. Another thing I can't get enough of is floral details on baked goods. This beautiful dried lavender is from Roxanne's Dried Flowers in the strip district!
Hope your Sunday was as cute as mine!
