Green Tea Cupcakes with Green Tea Buttercream
1 box white cake mix
3 egg whites
1 1/2C water
4tbs Matcha green tea powder
1 1/2 sticks butter softened
3tbs matcha green tea powder
5C powdered sugar
Preheat ove to 350
Prepare cupcake pans with liners and butter spray
Combine tea powder and cake mix, add water, egg whites and oil to mix thoroughly.
Spoon batter evenly into the cupcake pans at bake for 20 min or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Wait until cupcakes are completely cooled to make the frosting.
Combine water and tea powder to make a paste.
Cream butter and tea until completely combined.
Gradually add powdered sugar until you reach the consistency you like for frosting.
I like mine to be fairly firm so that I can pipe it onto the cupcakes.
