I actually made these cupcakes twice. Once for fun/just to try it out, and then again for a friends birthday. They are matcha (green tea) cupcakes, and I am extremely happy with them!!! The flavor is made with Matcha powder. I know that some people make it by brewing a cup of actual green tea, but i cant believe that the flavor would be strong enough for what i wanted (though admittedly i have never actually tried it). Anyways i really loved the way these came out, the flavor was just right even, my boyfriend and some of my other friends who are not fans of tea enjoyed it. The flavor is hard to describe, it is both like green tea and not, just something you have to try!
Though Im thinking im going to be changing the icing to matcha flavored buttercream, not that there was anything wrong with the taste of the regular icing on the cupcakes but for some reason every time i make this particular recipe the icing comes out flat on the cupcake (too liquidy) and buttercream will give me that nice classic cupcake icing shape. I got my recipe for the actual cake part of my cupcake from cupcake bakeshop by chockylit (minus the pomegranate seeds). Its a fantastic site with great pictures, and a huge and wonderful variety of cupcakes and their recipes!
