How to make these cupcakes

  • Start by frosting your vanilla cupcakes with the vanilla frosting of your choice and shrinking them with a generous amount of coconut flakes, to resemble snow.
  • Now melt your white chocolate and add a little bit of matcha at a time while stirring, until you reach your desired color of green.
  • Transfer the now green matcha white chocolate to a zip log baggie and snip off the end of the bag.
