Probably neither. Dried lavender usually comes in crumbly pieces, the bits of leaf that emerge from the drying process. If you halt to have large, whole dried lavender leaf, I suggest crumbling it lightly in your Palm, then adding, so it will disperse throughout cake. You could grind it to make powder, but I think the bits of lavender, larger than ground look nice in Baker goods.

Great! A little more info: I wrote leaf, but dried lavender is actually dried flowers. which reminds me, once you have lavender in the house, there are all kinds of uses for it, e.g.savory in the blends herbes de provence, sweet in some thing like a ricotta filling for crepes.

Hello! I added the lavender buds in whole because I like seeing the flecks of lavender in the finished cake. And once it is baked you don't really notice it when eating :) However, grinding up the lavender is a great option if you don't want the buds in the cake.
