Green Tea Rose Cupcake

I made this cupcake a while back for some reason I did not post it and I have no idea why. I think it was because I went on a baking spree and had too many projects to talk about and this one somehow slipped through the cracks.

This is a green tea cupcake with honey buttercream, garnished with a real dried rose – the type that is sold as a tea but I think looks stunning as a garnish. It’s really simple as well but I was very happy with the outcome. I paired it with one of my favourite books of all time – Pride and Prejudice – as well as a odd little guide book that my friend gave to my housemate  as a joke that matched the theme.

I cannot for the life of me find the recipe for the green tea cupcake but there are millions out there to choose from.

The buttercream was made with just a plain buttercream icing with 2-3 tablespoons of honey instead of the milk.

For the swirl, there is a great YouTube video that explains how to do it in detail so I won’t bore you with my substandard version.

    • Yes, it’s actually a very common flavour in Asian countries. Get your hands on some matcha powder and try it out – I think you’ll like it 🙂
