Need to make dessert, but don’t have a lot of time? This Easy Vanilla Green Tea Cupcakes From A Box recipe is here to help.
For the Cupcakes:
- 1 store bought cake mix (I used a White Cake Mix)
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 tsp matcha green tea powder
For the Buttercream:
- 1 cup butter (softened)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 5 cups icing sugar (sifted)
- 1/8 tsp mint flavouring
- milk (thin to desired consistency)
- green gel colouring (enough to achieve desired colour)
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.
