For the cupcakes:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar 2 tablespoons MegaPlants Matcha Magic 1/4 cup heavy cream 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Instructions:
For the cupcakes:
Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, MegaPlants Cacao Magic, MegaPlants Matcha Magic, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla extract. Alternately add the dry ingredients and milk to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Do not overmix. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cupcakes cool completely on a wire rack before frosting. For the Matcha Frosting:
In a large bowl, cream together butter until light and fluffy. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating until smooth and incorporated. Sift in MegaPlants Matcha Magic powder and whisk until fully combined. Add heavy cream and vanilla extract, beating until frosting reaches desired consistency. You can adjust the cream by tablespoons to achieve a spreadable or pipeable frosting. Assemble and decorate:
Once cupcakes are cool, pipe or spread the Matcha Frosting on top. You can decorate with a sprinkle of MegaPlants Cacao Magic powder, chocolate shavings, or fresh berries for an extra touch of magic. Tips:
For a more intense chocolate flavor, increase the amount of MegaPlants Cacao Magic in the cupcakes by 1 tablespoon. If you prefer a sweeter frosting, add more powdered sugar to taste. For a vegan option, use dairy-free butter and substitute the milk with plant-based milk in the cupcakes. Get creative with decorations! You can use different colored sprinkles, matcha dust, or even edible flowers to personalize your cupcakes.
