Lavender Chocolate Cupcakes for Thanksgiving

November 8th, 2010 by Jardin Du Soleil

Turkey Cupcakes are easy to make and look better than from the bakery! While combining lavender and chocolate can be tricky, this recipe makes it fool-proof: simply use our Rich Lavender Dark Chocolate, cut up as chocolate chips, in a chocolate cake mix. Our family Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake recipe follows. Lavender Dark Chocolate Cupcakes are a great way to make something new and unique for this Thanksgiving!

Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake with Lavender Chocolate Chips


2 cups flour
1/2 cup cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 cup cold water
1 teaspoon vanilla

2 bars Rich Lavender Dark Chocolate, cut into chocolate chip sized pieces


Sift together the flour, cocoa, soda and salt. Cream together the sugar, mayonnaise, water and vanilla. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture; stir until well blended. Mix in Lavender Dark Chocolate Chips. Pour batter into greased and floured layer cake pans (or a 9- x 13-inch pan). Bake at 350°F. for about 25 minutes

Buttercream Icing


1 cup butter, softened

4 cups powdered sugar

2 Tablespoons milk

1/2 cup cocoa


In a large bowl, cream butter until fluffy. Blend in powdered sugar, one cup at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the milk, and continue mixing until light and fluffy. Reserve a small amount of white icing for the turkey eyes. With the majority of the icing, mix in enough cocoa to make the frosting dark brown in color- you may have to add more milk if the frosting becomes too stiff.


Place icing in large ziplock bag or a disposable pastry bag. Cover top of cupcake with a thin layer of icing, then pipe two large blobs on top of each other for the head. Insert candy corn (it’s be easier if you break the white top off the five tail feathers, and the yellow bottom off the beak), and sprinkle chocolate sprinkles on the turkey’s back. Finally, use a small amount of white buttercream icing to pipe two small eyes on the turkey. To make the small beady eye, simply push a chocolate sprinkle into the white frosting, so that the end is visible. Congrats! You’ve got Chocolate Turkey Cupcakes that are almost too cute to eat!

We had so many cupcakes, we decorated some as pumpkins too:
