I used two of the four steamed buns to make the three layers, but in retrospect, I should probably have used three of the buns. I cut off the rounded tops so I had three flat, circular cakes, layered them with the matcha icing, and iced everything with a sprinkling of matcha powder at the end. Nothing complicated~ Chill for a bit before serving if you want. (Note: these are little cakes! about cup-cake circumference)
The icing accented the more mild flavor of the cakes. I used a good amount of matcha in the icing, so it definitely had a strong green tea flavor. Use less if you prefer more sweetness to come through, or alternately, just increase the amount of sugar a bit.
Recipe for Matcha Icing
I have a bad habit of throwing things together and not writing down the measurements, so... be warned ;)
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 c sugar
- 2 tsp matcha (That sounds like a lot actually... more matcha = deeper green, stronger tea flavor. But I like the strong tea flavor.)
