6oz margarine
3oz lavender caster sugar

1-cream margarine in a large mixing bowl with a hand held mixer

2- sift in dry ingedients, then tip the lavender flowers from the sieve in too

3- add eggs and mix very well to combine thoroughly

4- grease two sandwich tins with butter and divide the mixture equally

5- place into a pre-heated oven at 190c for 25-30mins until firm to the touch

6- remove from the oven and leave to rest in the tins for 5 mins

7- remove sponges from tins and cool completely on a wire rack

8- once cool, fill and decorate as you please-yum!
