Lovely Milky Black Tea Cupcakes!


milky black tea cupcake for bobbi!



A lovely weekend... I experimented with a new flavour creation, milky black tea cupcakes. The result was a subtle, milky tea flavoured cupcake with a milky-tea buttercream. Maybe I should call them Milky Tea cupcakes? I modified a wonderful recipe from the book Sky High Cakes-- I love this book. The photographs and design elements are beautiful and any cake I've made from this book has had the most wonderful, tender crumb.

These cutie little milky black tea buttercream topped tea cupcakes I made partially for a trade with my friend Claire of My Favourite Dress-- go to her etsy for the cutest, finely made things imaginable. She has a lovely sense of craftswomanship to her products too. I got the most beautiful scalloped bunting in shades of blue vintage materials, which I will use to hang up for my husband's upcoming birthday party.

My intention was also to make the cupcakes for my friend Bobbi's champagne engagement party! Hooray! So much mileage out of these delightful little cupcakes... ! :)
