DIY Favours: Lavender Sugar

This is a simple and inexpensive DIY favour for wedding or party. Lavender sugar is great in shortbread and sprinkled over cakes and fruit.

What you’ll need:

  • Normal white sugar (or caster sugar)
  • Bunch / handfuls of dried lavender blossoms
  • Large container with lid
  • Sifter

How to:

  1. Fill the container with sugar
  2. Add the dried lavender blossoms
  3. Seal the container and let it stand for 2 weeks, shaking the container occasionally to mix evenly
  4. After the 2 weeks, pour sugar through sifter to get the blossoms out
  5. Fill small jars or bags with the lavender sugar
  6. Add a label and some pretty ribbon

Storing your lavender sugar:
You can make the sugar up to 2 months before the wedding. Package in small bags or jars up to 2 months before the big day. On the label, let guests know to use within 6 months, and suggest uses – great in shortbread, sprinkled over a sponge or stirred into berries.

* The amount of lavender, sugar and container size used are dependent on how many favours you wish to make
