Tea Time!

I went a little overboard a few weeks ago making some tea treats!

The cupcakes and cookies were so delicious that it’s only fair that I share the recipes!

The matcha icing for the cupcakes was one of my favourite parts. It was so creamy, buttery and delicious:

Ingredients
  • 3 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 cup of butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 tbsp whipping cream
  • 1 heaping tbsp matcha
Instructions

Frosting: In a standing mixer fitted with a whisk, blend together sugar, butter and matcha. Keep mixer on a low speed until ingredients are blended and then increase speed to medium and beat for another 3 minutes. (Note: I used a hand mixer and it worked).

Add vanilla and cream and continue to beat on medium speed for 1 minute more, adding more cream if needed for spreading consistency.

The recipe for the actual cupcake came from here. I used a different blueberry white tea. Next time I would probably brew it much stronger as the flavour was very weak in the cupcake (though still yummy!).

The cookies were from Sweet Beet & Green Bean. I used a raspberry black tea for the recipe. Next time I would probably use a stronger tea for this recipe as well, but they were still quite delicious. I didn’t follow the icing part for this recipe, and instead made a simple Royal Icing mixture using Meringue Powder.

The tea cookie cutouts were purchased on AmazonAmazon also has a variety of teacup cupcake moulds. I also found a set by fluke at a dollar store (Dollarama).

Happy brewing and baking!
