Almond Green Tea Cupcakes from Baked

As I had mentioned in my last post, I bought two new books one of them being “Baked: New Frontiers in baking”

I was dying to try out something from that book and here I am! I made the almond and green tea cupcakes (page 76)

I always feel that baking cakes/cupcakes is something you should save for when you have a crowd. It’s fun when you can watch other people enjoy what you have cooked. So I got the perfect chance. I catered 😛 for my mothers tea party. Well a party would be an exaggeration, it was more like a little gossip over tea.

Anyways I made the cupcakes and OMG they were fab!

I followed the recipe to the tee and its a good thing I did.

The frosting was a dream.. green tea powder made like a pastry cream first and then ends up as butter cream frosting.. the guests were guessing what went in it.. ‘pistachios’ is where the guessing stopped.

Lets zoom in to see the frosting… mmmm

I still have a bit of the frosting in my refrigerator and I have discovered the pleasures of licking bits of it off my fingers.

    I agree! There’s nothing like cupcakes to appease a crowd…especially if there’s children. This recipe looks so interesting.
