Can I use fresh lavender instead of dry lavender for baking a chocolate lavender cake?

That should be fine -- I would increase the quantity however, as the dried stuff has a much more potent flavor. And, perhaps, mortar-and-pestle it a bit so it releases its oils.

The rule of thumb with converting fresh herbs and dried herbs is 2 to 1. If a recipe calls for 1 teaspoon fresh herbs, then use 1/2 teaspoon dried (and vice versa).

Agree. I'd process the flowers with whatever sugar called for before proceeding. And be sure the blossoms are organic.
Thank you for the fast response - this is awesome!!
