Assorted Cupcakes

Cupcakes!!! Cupcakes!!! Now it's my turn to try them out too... :) Em... I find that Cupcakes are easy to consume rather than cake itself. Because it's more of a individual portion size and it's easy to handle and more challenging to design a small cake compare to a big one. Since I am still not very well verse in my cupcake skill with those sugar paste and figure I might as well keep them simple and easy to handle for beginner like me.

After posting the Mango Poppy Seeds Cupcakes Post, I had a chance to make a batch of those with mango for an order this week. Thanks Marlyn for giving me this chance :)

This Lychee Cream Cheese Cupcake idea came from my Lychee Charlotte Cheesecake. Since most of us find that cheesecake is rather heavy to consume in large quantity, we can actually make them into smaller portion which is easier to distribute and more presentable.

You can made them into different cup size according to your preference from mini, medium or large. I personally prefer mini size which is great to serve as dessert to guest after meal.

I loved the Green Tea muffins & Green Tea Auzki Bean Bread from one of the local bakery Breadtalk, so it had being always my dream to make a some bakes using Green Tea.

So This round, I had made these Green Tea & Auzki Beans Cupcakes With Green Tea Butter Cream instead of Cream Cheese. As I want to try the different taste and texture of these two cream. As for the cream I used the same Italian Butter Cream as my Macarons and it really taste great with these Green Tea Cake.Posted by Picasa
