I finally made a birthday cake from scratch. Its a green tea cake with green tea cream cheese frosting. Plus, it has strawberries on top. What’s not to like? 🙂

For the green tea cake, I followed this recipe. I baked the cake in a rectangular pan, and then cut out two hearts using a stencil. Then, I made frosting mixing an 8oz. pack of cream cheese, 2 tablespoons of butter, 3/4 cup powdered sugar, and one teaspoon matcha powder. Frosting the cake was quite tricky because bits of cake would crumble when I spread a thin layer, so I had to use a lot of frosting. I decided to put strawberries on top because the cake looked quite bare.

It was so yummy! The matcha flavor really came through, not to mention the green color was very pretty. My only concern was that the cake itself was a bit dry, maybe because I cut the hearts out immediately after they came out of the oven.

Since Easter is coming up, I might bake another cake! Let me know what kind of cake I should bake in the comments 🙂

Love,

Serena
