We are tea-oholics, like serious tea-oholics. So when we realized we would get a chance to add tea to cupcakes, we were ecstatic! We just replaced the water called for on the cake mix box with double-strength green tea. Not knowing when to stop, we went even further and made a decadent buttercream frosting flavored with Chinese five-spice powder, which is a blend of cinnamon, star anise, cloves and more. Between the spiced buttercream and the green tea cakes, we were in heaven!
Here’s what you need to make them: White or yellow Betty Crocker SuperMoist® cake mix, vegetable oil, double-strength green tea, eggs, butter, vanilla, powdered sugar, Chinese five-spice and toasted coconut.
