i made these green tea cupcakes:
with white betty crocker cake mix an frosting plus this:
from left to right that is green tea flavored mochi filled with azuki bean, sweetened green tea powder, and azuki bean paste. i put about two and a half tablespoons of the green tea powder in the cake mix and the rest in the frosting. before baking i placed a dalop of the azuki paste in each cup. after baking i cooled the cupcakes on racks. once cooled, i applied the green tea frosting to the cupcakes using wilton tip #1M before topping with a mochi.
observe the anatomy:
by far my favorite cupcakes ever. and applepiejen wouldn't even try them.

my friend jenny and i decided to tackle cupcake pops using the method described by bakerella. the cake centers were french vanilla betty crocker cake and white frosting. we used a combination of chocolate and butterscotch chips for the bottoms. for the tops we used vanilla melts with food coloring and various sprinkles. instead of legit small plastic treat bags, we used sandwich bags trimmed to the right size. the results were fucking adorable (and delicious!):
