green gel colouring(enough to achieve desired colour)
Preheat oven according to box directions. Line a muffin tin with liners.
To make the Cupcakes:
Mix cake mix according to package directions.
Add the vanilla and mix.
Add the matcha green tea and mix well.
Fill muffin liners 2/3 full with batter.
Bake according to package directions. Test with cake tester. When done, remove from oven. Let cool for a few minutes, then transfer cupcakes to cooling rack. Cool completely before frosting.
For the Buttercream:
Using a stand mixed, cream the butter and salt until fluffy.
Start adding the sifted icing sugar, about 1 cup at a time. Blend well each time.
Add milk 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency of frosting.
If you are going to make different coloured icing, divide buttercream into bowls. For this recipe I just removed some of the buttercream into a bowl, since I was using both white and green for the colours.
Tint the buttercream to the desired colour.
Place your desired tips onto piping bags, and fill the bags with buttercream.
