Georgetown Cupcake - Lavender Earl Grey Teacake
June brings us a new monthly cupcake flavor at Georgetown Cupcake, woo! This Lavender Earl Grey Teacake was originally created for co-owner Katherine's tea-themed bridal shower. It is a "Classic Madagascar Bourbon vanilla cupcake infused with lavender and earl grey tea, topped with a lavender infused buttercream frosting, a fondant flower, and a sprinkle of lavender sugar".
I was cautiously excited to try out this new cupcake flavor once it was available. I say "cautiously" because for as much as I LOVE tea-flavored baked goods, lavender makes me think of soap. And scented candles. And basically anything floral and not edible, haha.
It could've been this particular cupcake that I got, but luckily this one did not remind me of soap at all, haha. There was a strong tea flavor that I really enjoyed, with little pockets of a lavender taste, just enough that I knew it was there. The frosting is a really pretty light purple color, and this would be a great addition to a tea-themed party!
