Lavender Pound Cake

I had the most lovely wedding last weekend, where we used lavender for the flower girls. I bought a ton, and kept some for myself- I had some yummy recipes in mind… the first is this delicious Lavender Pound Cake! We have a restaurant in town that serves Lavender Pound Cake with strawberries and cream. It is one of my favorites, so I thought I’d give it a whirl. It was successful, I hope y’all enjoy!
