I'm practicing Chai Cupcakes for my besties birthday...my first time making tea infused cupcakes. For those of you who don't know what Chai is...it's black tea with different spices... Cardamom, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger, Star Anise and I then added Vanilla Bean. This cupcake is one I would prefer in the fall...but it's not my birthday so I just do what I'm told. :) I topped these with vanilla bean butter cream and then a little of the mixed spices. I would do a simple whipped cream with vanilla bean and same spices as it seams like a more appealing topping...maybe the same way they might top a Chai beverage at a coffee shop. They turned out pretty good.

Just pics of the things I look forward to all day long...well some of the things!
Most people wouldn't be as excited but if you love cupcaking you will understand the joy of
getting all the baking paraphernalia in the mail! Including fancy little cupcake business cards...
How cute are these? Made by me on Zazzle.com
perfect for cupcake topping!

I love the preppy look they will bring to some rich chocolate
and cherry cupcakes or maybe cherry vanilla cupcakes...
