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.

    That has got to be the most gorgeous picture of a chocolate and green tea cupcake I’ve ever seen! It’s a good thing I’ve got matcha powder on hand or I’ll be dreaming of these all week 😆

      I bought it from Super Grocer at 12051 No. 1 Road, Richmond. I’m sure you can find it in many groceries stores.
