First, make the lemon lavender cakes (ideally the day before frosting and serving). To prep, line 3 6-inch cake pans with parchment paper on the bottom and grease the sides of the pans. Set aside and preheat the oven to 350F.
Add the all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt to a small bowl and sift together. Set aside.
Next, add the oat milk, olive oil, organic sugar, lemon juice, lavender paste, and lemon zest to a large mixing bowl and gently whisk together.
Once mixed, add in the sifted dry ingredients and mix together JUST until a batter forms and all streaks of flour are gone. It is important to NOT overmix the cake batter or too much gluten will form.
Pour the batter evenly into the 3 parchment-lined cake pans. Before baking, lightly tap each pan on the counter to release any large air bubbles and even out the batter. Then, add the cakes to the oven and bake for 28-30 minutes until cooked through and lightly browned on top.
Remove the cakes and let cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes. Run a knife along the edge of each pan to loosen any cake that may be stuck. Then, flip each cake onto a wire rack to cool completely.
While the cakes are cooling, make the lemon curd and then add to the fridge to set for at least 2 hours before using.
Once the cakes have cooled, you can frost them. However, I strongly recommend making the cakes a day ahead of time, wrapping each cake in plastic wrap, and storing in the fridge for 12-24 hours before frosting.
