  • When the cupcakes are cold, pipe the cream crease frosting on top or use an ice-cream scoop to dollop the frosting on the stunning red-domed cupcakes.
  • Mel t the butter in a small saucepan until just liquid.
  • Add the tea leaves and continue heating the mixture for 5 minutes over very low heat.
  • Remove the butter from the heat and let the mixture stand for another 5 minutes.
  • Strain out the tea leaves by pouring the liquid butter through a sieve into a bowl.
  • Press the tea into the sieve with spoon on order to squeeze out the butter it has absorbed.
  • Preheat oven to 170°C. Line 18, 80ml (1/3 cup) capacity muffin pans with paper cases.
  • Sift flour, cocoa powder and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl. Stir through the sugar.
  • Whisk the buttermilk, tea infused melted butter, eggs, vinegar and vanilla in a large jug until combined.
  • Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture. Add the buttermilk mixture. Stir until just combined. Stir in the food colouring.
  • Divide the mixture among the lined pans.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centres comes out clean. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
