MATCHA CUPCAKES WITH BUTTERCREAM FROSTING


After posting how I make my Matcha Green Tea Latte's, many of you asked me what else can you make with the yummy and healthy Matcha powder. We’ll never fear because I have created the most yummy cupcakes with it and they’re pretty too. You’ll really impress your friends and family with these babies!

  10. I love the little pineapple on top at the end! These sound great and look scrumptious! I am partial to cream cheese icing (see what I did there?) but this buttercream looks amazing! Have a happy Tuesday!

  11. That little pineapple toothpick is the cutest. I'm pretty sure I could eat the frosting and be plenty happy, but putting it on top of a cupcake, well that's jus the icing on the cake. HA (I fancy myself a comedian #lame) Thanks for the recipe friend. I still haven't worked up the nerve to order that matcha powder. I'm such a chicken!!!🐔 XOXO
