14 Apr

It’s Spring.  The weather is beautiful.  All we need now is a cold glass of something sweet, right?  How about these Sweet Peach Tea Cupcakes (recipe below from Baked Perfection)?

The cupcakes are moist and sticky. They taste exactly like a really, really sweet peach iced tea! Really, really sweet though.

The frosting is thick and a really pretty pink-ish iced tea color. It, like the cupcakes, is extremely sweet and peachy.

Together it’s a smooth, creamy, super-sweet peach iced tea cupcake. No doubt that that’s what it is. The peach tea is a very prominent flavor. If you love sweet tea, this may be your cupcake! Otherwise, I might consider the frosting on a plain, vanilla cupcake or, vice versa, the cupcake with a simpler frosting.
