Chai Spice Cupcakes

IMG_2529


I'm still alive...I promise! Life has been moving at breakneck speed for me lately. I have been busy at work. Busy baking, baking, baking. Baking cinnamon rolls, cinnamon swirl bread, buns, muffins, scones, berry crisps, cookies, bagels, pita bread, cake and cupcakes. Recently, I baked about 125 of these scrumptious Chai Spice Cupcakes. These were a huge hit. They are laced with mini chocolate chips as well as bold and fragrant chai spices and chai tea. They are topped off with a delicious swirl of cinnamon chocolate buttercream frosting. Yum!

I found this recipe over at The Sweetest Kitchen. They used a chocolate cinnamon ganache frosting on top but I was feeling lazy so I went with the butter cream for this time. I'll try the ganache next time.

Please click HERE for the recipe. Trust me, you won't want to pass these up! ;)

Hope you all are having a wonderful week.

I've never made chai cupcakes before, they look amazing!

These look so good, Kim. I wonder if chocolate frosting would have been good on the spice cakes I used to make all the time you were growing up. I always used vanilla. Next time I come up I hope there will be more than just one cupcake left. :)
