    Mise en place:

    Cake:
    1 1/4 cup unbleached flour plus 3 Tbsp 
    1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour 
    1 cup coconut milk
    3/4 cup water
    1/3 cup olive oil or canola oil 
    2 teaspoon Ener-G Baking Powder
    2 tablespoons Mexican Vanilla Bean Extract
    2 tablespoons Almond Extract 
    *3/4 teaspoon Stevia or 3/4 cup turbinado sugar if you wish this not to be sugar free but subtract 3 Tbsp flour if you use sugar. Or for a reduced sugar cake, use 3/4 cup Steviacane. 

    Frosting:
    2 1/4 cups Steviacane (Half cane sugar and Stevia at the store) sifted as much as possible
    1/2 cup Super Lemon Haze cannabutter 
    1/4 cup dried lavender
    1 tablespoon coconut milk
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 teaspoons almond extract
    White food coloring

    Directions: 

    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients for the cake. Now add in all the wet ingredients while stirring quickly with a whisk or electric mixer. Pour into lined cupcake pans and place into the oven. Bake for 18-25 minutes, depending on your oven or when a toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Pull from the oven and place on a cooling rack until the cupcakes are completely cooled.

    In second bowl combine the Super Lemon Haze cannabutter, Steviacane, coconut milk, vanilla extract and almond extract. If the frosting runs too thin, add more Steviacane to thicken to the consistency you want. Now take 1/4 cup of dried lavender leaves and split that in half. Take half of the lavender leaves and place them into one palm of your hand. Rub your hands together while dropping the lavender buds into the frosting then gently stir to incorporate. This releases essential oils and flavors of the lavender buds. Reserve the other 1/2 of the lavender buds for final decoration. Mix in the white food coloring to achieve the color you want. Pipe the frosting onto the cooled cupcakes and then gently decorate with the remaining lavender. Enjoy!
