Strawberry Matcha Cupcakes



Cupcakes are definitely the go option for a quick and super delicious dessert. So as a new spin on this classic, I chose the matcha and strawberry flavour that I find go very well together. The cupcakes are matcha flavoured and then filed with some homemade strawberry jam.

To top off all this deliciousness, I chose a flower shaped frosting that is made with a strawberry buttercream.


Let me know what you guys think !
