Lavender-Honey Cupcakes

Fancy pastry work -- such as these candy-coating monograms -- looks far more difficult to make than they actually are. You don't even need a pastry bag. Just snip the edge from one corner of a resealable plastic bag to do your piping. And you can make homemade cupcakes if you like, but if short on time, bakery cakes will do just fine.
