Green Tea Cupcakes

The health benefits of green tea are well known.  It is full of powerful antioxidants that counterbalance any negative effects of sugary desserts.  OK, I just made that up.  But it sounds like a good reason to bake up some green tea cupcakes – all in the name of research! 
In honor of the green holiday that is coming up soon, I thought it would be interesting to give these green tea cupcakes a try.  Imagine my toddler’s face when I hand him a green cupcake on St. Patrick’s Day!
1. These Matcha Cupcakes with Matcha Cream Cheese Frosting by MaaMeeMooMoo look absolutely gorgeous.  By the way, Matcha is basically a special finely milled green tea.

2. The color of these cupcakes is perfect for St. Patty's day.  But the ingredients sound divine - Green Tea & Strawberry Cupcakes with Custard Filling from Une Deux Senses.  So much for the health benefits of the green tea. :)

3. Or maybe
Pomegranate Green Tea Cupcakes are more your style?  These from Cupcake blog by Chockylit have "Pomegranate Foam" made of pom juice, sugar and egg whites instead of frosting.  Sounds like a refreshing frosting substitute!

I’d love to hear if you work some green tea into your St. Patty’s Day desserts!
