Inviting Arkansas: What is your signature baking style?
Hannah Lavender
: I guess I like simple things. I’m not one to go over the top with my cakes, I don’t like using fondant very much, and usually stick with buttercream to go for a more rustic look.

IA: What is your favorite cupcake flavor?
Either vanilla or strawberry – I think it’s a tie.

IA: Have you ever had a kitchen fiasco?
One time I spilled hot bacon grease all down my arm, that’s probably the biggest fiasco. I am known among my friends to be quite clumsy in the kitchen; I’m good at getting weird cuts and scrapes.

IA: What keeps you living + giving in Central Arkansas?
: I like the size of Little Rock. I’ve lived here for seven years now and it’s just a good place with lots of good people.

IA: Why did you choose to be a participant in Cupcakes for Goodness Sake?
I’m always down to bake for a good cause!

IA: What’s the anticipated highlight of the event for you?
Getting creative and seeing everyone else’s yummy creations!
