Green Tea Icing

Ava made two types of icing for her Chocolate Cupcakes.

The first icing is Green Tea Icing.


  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 4 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons matcha powder
  • 5 to 6 cups icing sugar, sifted

P/S: ignore the Icing Color bottle; we did not use it.

Prep time: 10 minutes; Serve 24 cupcakes


Combine matcha powder with whipping cream and mix into a paste; set aside.
Beat butter briefly in a bowl. Sift the icing sugar into the butter.
Add the matcha paste.
Beat until smooth. Use a piping bag to decorate the cupcakes.
