A friend of mine gave me food grade dried lavender flowers. She wants me to make a lavender cake or a cake with lavender frosting. I just don't know where to start. If i make a lavender cake what frosting/filling should I use. Any ideas would help thanks in advanced.

Lavender flavored cake? Because if not, you could candy them and use as decoration

I think these from the Martha Stewart site are very pretty and sound yummy!

I have used lavender before. I make lavender and lemon tea biscuits. You can buy a culinary grade lavender. Here is a link. http://www.thespicehouse.com/spices/dried-lavender-flower-buds-food-grade

The lemon went very well, so you could used a lemon buttercream or curd to fill.

I have tried this products in a their road show and they are amazing.

I know they have violets, it's not lavender but it's also flowers

Have you checked the sugar work forum here? There is one. I can't say how helpful it will be as I don't do any of that as yet.
