Earl Grey Milk Tea Cupcakes
Earl Grey Milk Tea Cupcakes with Mascarpone Frosting

I went over to JustJenn's house for New Year's Oshogatsu yumminess...along with tons of traditional Japanese foods she created Royal T Milk Tea Cupcakes. They were delicious and I couldn't wait to try them myself!

Milk used in the cupcake is heated and the tea steeps in the milk. The frosting is so light and delicious. An easy combo of mascarpone cream, sugar and whipped cream...it is just so good!

Earl Grey Milk Tea Cupcakes
Remember my 40th Birthday? I went to Bouchon's pop up bakery in Beverly Hills with justJenn and stopped by Crate & Barrel. I gifted myself this new cake stand...and had them gift wrap it!! I brought it home and put it aside...then came Christmas and mochi making and I forgot about it. Imagine my delight when I opened this Perfect Gift this year! :)

Earl Grey Milk Tea Cupcakes
This absolutely cute and beautiful cupcake stand is handcrafted by Oakland, CA-based ceramic artist Whitney Smith. Thank you so much my dear friend Sumi for this delightful birthday gift!

Wow these look so great including you mad pic taking skills! love the cupcake stand too how pretty. Is there a big tea flavor or is it more subtle. I have to try these regardless!

Earl Grey is my favourite! Love these cakes. Sweet cake stand. Isn't it amazing how much the citrus flavour comes out when you bake with Earl Grey? Yum.

I have had Whitney Smith in my favorites for years on Etsy, just hoping my boyfriend would get the hint one of these birthdays. What a generous friend you have. Your photos really are beautiful.

Yum, yum, yum. I once made earl grey ice cream which is great. I'm sure these are too. Love the idea- maybe I'll make a batch for my husband, the earl grey lover.
