Frosting for tea time:
What better frosting to bring than a green tea frosted cupcake all dolled up in a pink reminder liner.
Green Tea Frosting
4 teaspoons high quality green tea powder (it must be the powder, I use rishi tea, Genmai Green Tea Powder
4-5 tbsp whole milk or heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla
Heat the milk, dissolve green tea powder and remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and set aside for at least one hour. I make mine the day before and put in fridge.
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 1/2 - 3 cups powdered sugar
Beat the butter until super light and fluffy about 5 minutes. Slowly incorporate the powdered sugar into the butter until you no longer can without adding liquid. It will be creamy and spreadable but very stiff. Now start adding your green tea milk, you should use it all and keep beating until very fluffy. At this point you can pipe using a 1M Wilton tip in a disposable liner or you can fold in 3 tbsp whipped topping and frost cupcakes with an offset spatula. The green colour in this frosting is simply gorgeous with pink!
Decorate with pretty little pink beads or ribbons of even a small DIY topper. My recipe for pink velvet cupcakes to come October 1st, so keep an eye out! Please make sure to sign our new guestbook!
