    2. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. By using a mixer with a slow speed, combine the remaining 2 teaspoons of lavender-chamomile tea leaf with cake flour, sugar, baking power and salt. Add the room temperature butter and mix until it becomes soft crumbs. Add 1/2 of milk/egg mixture and continue beating for 30 seconds. Add the remaining milk/egg mixture and beat for another 30 seconds. 
    3. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven. Check with thin toothpick to see if the centre of the cake comes out clean.
    4. For the cake icing, add and mix the honey frosting ingredients into a bowl. Beat until very smooth. Frost the cake to your liking.

Enjoy your perfectly baked cake with a cup of Lavender Chamomile tea or Lavender Rose Earl Grey aside.
