This past weekend I was in Torrance, CA in the end of the year event for Circle K - District Convention.
For a couple of weeks, the district board and I were deciding what to get the governor and I decided that I would take on the task to make a cupcake bouquet that I had seen online. I was inspired by these two different blogs that have made cupcake bouquets. I decided to take elements from both and create my own cupcake bouquet.
This was definitely fun to put together at 4am the night before [sarcasm] but I did enjoy working together with my friend to put it together.
The cupcake was kind of a chocolate green tea cupcake. They were amazingly good.
Green tea cupcakes
1 cup of milk
6 green tea bags
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
a pink of salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1.) Put the milk and green tea bags in a cup and refrigerate overnight.
2.) Preheat the oven at 325 F.
3.) Put the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, salt and butter in a mixer and beat on a slow speed until you get a sandy consistency and everything is combined.
4.) Remove tea bags from the infused milk and combine with egg and vanilla extract.
5.) Slowly pour this mixture into the flour mixture, beating well until all the ingredients are well mixed.
6.) Spoon the mixture into cupcake liners until about 2/3 full and bake in a preheated over for 20-25 minutes.
I would have to thank all my supporters in any way. I know that people support me through this blog, but also my friends who support me in a different, by actually eating everything! I love you guys.
