Green tea delight!
Finally, I got a chance to make the cupcakes I've been eyeing since I first got VCTOTW: Green tea cupcakes. Actually, my closest girl friend came over and we made these together--a double batch. I had so many people to share these with, I didn't want to take a chance on not making enough. Aren't they cute? We made marzipan hearts to go on top, and as I looked at them I realized that they would have fit in nicely on Valentine's day. Oh well.
The frosting is such a pretty green from the matcha green tea powder... and this means that the green tea flavor is there too. On Friday night a couple of my friends and I went out for sushi, and afterwards we came back to my apartment for cupcakes. What better way to end a sushi meal than with a green tea dessert?
These cupcakes are the best so far, and I daresay they will be hard to compete with. The ingredients are a bit on the pricey side, though, so these will have to be reserved for special occasions from now on. But try them, if you get a chance--you won't be disappointed!
