National Chocolate Cupcake Day

Even though I had an eggplant waiting in the wings, I decided that today had to be recognized. I would have made these this morning and brought them in for my coworkers, and a late Boss's Day gift (ha), but I can't peel myself off the sheets before 11:00am. It was a dead sprint to midnight to get these puppies done.



So, besides the obvious cheating by using food coloring for the frosting, where is the violet? Well, mixed right into the batter is a handful of culinary lavender that I picked up a few months ago. I'm a little worried that my cupcakes are going to make my coworkers sleepy. Or suddenly want a bubble bath and a glass of wine.



In case you're wondering, that's a Skittle on top.

Wow! Those look faaaabulous! Lavender frosting - can you believe I've never thought of that? Like ever, not even when I was nine and wanted everything to be lavender. And lavender right in the cupcake! Double wow! Mail me one? Yeah, I'm sure that would work out great, what with all that gorgeous icing piped on top... ;)
