Patrina's Earl Grey Cupcakes

The recipe for these delicious little Earl Grey Cupcakes with Mascarpone Frosting was recently featured on Steph's Cup of Tea Blog.  In her post, Steph credits Patrina of The Jasmine Pearl with crafting this recipe.  The Jasmine Pearl is a specialty tea business located in Portland, OR, and they happened to be celebrating a special event with unique tea infused treats.
Excited to try the recipe, I finally found some extra time.... and let me tell you, they are yummy!  And, personally, although I am not a true fan of Earl Grey Tea, the combination of the infused cupcakes lavishly topped with a whipped cream mascarpone frosting, well, I could become a devout fan of these!  If you would like a copy of the recipe, be sure to visit Steph's blog post here,  and tell her I sent you!  In the meantime, may I offer you a cup of tea and a cupcake?  Earl Grey, of course.

The mini Earl Grey cupcakes look delicious. That is a really pretty tea towel in the background.

I'm so, so happy that you enjoyed the recipe! I think it's a bit of heaven. And is that tea towel from our trip to London? Happy New Year!

Oh I saw that recipe with Steph, but because I am not an Earl Grey fan I didn't try it. Now I think I must. Thanks for the encouragement. And of course anything with marscarpone icing has got to be good.
