Baby Shower Cupcakes

My mom contacted me with a last minute request for some baby shower cupcakes for one of her co-workers. This is actually my first baby shower so I wanted to try something new... So I whipped these babies up ;-)
Since the theme colors were green and yellow I thought of lemon for yellow. As for the green, I've been wanting to use the matcha powder I had purchased last week, so why not green tea cupcakes? I added a chocolate ganache center too.

The decor idea was from a user on Cake Central. I used the rest of the marshmallow fondant I had from the cake I made last week.


  1. Hmmm I see alot of recipe's out there using matcha powder. I want to try it, but I'm scared :).

    Cute cupcakes and photos Cara!


  2. Thanks girl! I loooove green tea things. It's pretty easy to use this powder... for the cupcakes I used my favorite vanilla cupcake recipe and cut down the vanilla and added the matcha powder until I liked the color and taste (yes i tasted the raw cake batter lol)
