I have been such a slacker when it comes to participating in the Martha Stewart Cupcake Club. The last time I participated...September! I love cupcakes but it just seems like I never have enough time to participate in all of the baking groups or blog parties I'd like to. Do you like Chai Tea? I love it, almost more than coffee. When I saw this month's recipe was for Chai Tea Cupcakes, I couldn't wait to give them a try.
Unfortunately, I was disappointed. It will be interesting to see what everyone else thought. I cut the recipe in half and ended up with 24 mini's. I thought these were just BLAH! They only had a hint of Chai Tea flavor and the frosting wasn't very tasty. My other challenge with these, they were DRY. I feel like most of the Martha cupcakes I've made have been dry. If anyone has a secret for moist cupcakes, I hope you'll share.
I'd love to find a good Chai Tea cupcake recipe. If you have one, let me know. Thanks to Rachael of Simple Girl for hosting this month. You can find the recipe on her blog. If you're curious what the other MSC bakers thought, you can find those links here.
Next up for MSC...Tiramisu Cupcakes.
