Lavender Earl Grey Cupcakes for Better Homes and Gardens

Hi friends! This month I’ll be sharing a few of my cake creations on the Better Homes and Gardens blog – starting with these tea-time inspired cupcakes! They’re so easy to make, and perfect for a Mother’s Day dessert.

Lavender and Earl Grey flavors have a natural affinity for each other, but you can use any tea you fancy. To get all the details (including how I made tea bag tags into cupcake toppers) click here!

You might want to check your recipe post: under 'Honey Frosting' it repeats the ingredient list for the cupcakes.

I'm allergic to honey (as I'm sure others are). A good substitute for honey is Lyle's Golden Syrup; it's liquid cane sugar with a lovely flavour & it's going to work really well with this recipe.

Thank you Naomi, this is Better Homes and Garden's original recipe that I put my spin on, so I'll let their editorial team know that the frosting recipe is missing.

Just so pretty, Heather. I love the honey in the center and the clever repurposing of the tea tags!

Will you be able to notify us when BHG has the recipe corrected? I don't normally get on their site unless you have a recipe posted there.

I submitted the edit to BHG, and the note has been passed forward but I'm not sure how long it will take to get fixed. Here are the frosting ingredients. The instructions are correct, so refer to them in the recipe.

Frosting ingredients:
5 oz. mascarpone or cream cheese
3 tbsp. butter
1/4 cup honey
3 cups powdered sugar

Thanks everyone for your patience. xx-Kisses!
