themorningview asked: actually Matcha can easily be found at health food stores such as Whole Foods and Mother's Market. I get the Do Matcha brand from these stores all the time :]

ah thank you as well :)

alexalfurinn asked: For the person who wanted to know where they could find matcha, I would suggest looking East Asian supermarkets in your area. There's also Mitsuwa, a specifically Japanese supermarket where I'm sure you could find it, but the chances there's one near you is much smaller, as they only have five or six stores, and then only in the U.S.

Those are the options if you're up for an adventure. Otherwise, I would suggest ordering it online from specialty tea stores like Rishi Tea or Teavana, both of which have it in stock.

thank you!

ellis-bell asked: Ohmygod do you please have the recipe for the Death by Oreo Cupcakes? I clicked the image but it just went through to flickr

Dry Ingredients:
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (dark chocolate cocoa powder like Hersheys)2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Wet Ingredients:
1 cup whole milk
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate melted and cooled (cooled for about 15 min make sure its still melted though don’t want it to harden back up)
½ cup plus 1 tbsp water, heated to boiling ( have a kettle of water on the stove boiling ready to go)
3/4 cup vegetable oil2 large eggs room temp
2 tablespoons vinegar (not wine vinegar)
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 package of regular sized Oreo cookies and one package of mini Oreo cookies
 InstructionsThis can be done with a stand mixer or by hand with a hand mixer or whisk but it is more of a 2 bowl method than one if going the hand mixing route
1. Preheat oven to 350F with rack in the center.
2. Place paper baking cups in regular sized muffin tins, spray edges around cups lightly with cooking spray. If you have a small 6 cup muffin tin and you onlyget 27 or 28 cupcakes fill the rest of the wells halfway with water and no bakingcup
3. Carefully twist off one side of the oreo and place the half with the cream filling down, filling side up in the bottom of each liner
4. Whisk together the dry ingredients (sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt)in a large bowl.
5. In a large bowl or bowl of stand mixer whisk eggs till slightly thickened and a palecolor
6. Add in the milk, vanilla, oil and vinegar and whisk/beat well
7. Add in the melted and cooled chocolate and whisk/beat until combined well
8. Either add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients OR the wet into the flour and mixjust to combine. Add in the boiling water and mix again just to combine. Scrapedown the sides of the bowl with a spatula to make sure all the dry ingredients areincorporated
9. Fill each cupcake liner 3/4 of the way with batter. You will have more than 24 cupcakes this way so if you don’t have another tin or even a 6 cup tin, keep the remaining batter set aside and bake  the rest after the first batch comes out of the oven 
10. Bake 15-18 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean and free of crumbs or the cupcake tops bounce back when lightly pressed. Mine baked for18 minutes. 
11. Let cool for 5 min in pans and then remove carefully to a wire cooling rack. Cool completely before frosting

Oreo Swiss Meringue ButtercreamAdapted from Martha Stewart’s Cupcakes

INGREDIENTS

Makes 5 cups

  • 5 large egg whites
  • 1 cup plus 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 cups (4 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature, cut into tablespoon sized pieces
  • 1 1/2  tsp teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • oreo cookie crumbs ( 12-14 whole oreos, pulse in food processor until you get very fine crumbs, no big pieces left)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place sugar and egg whites in the heat-proof bowl of an electric mixer. Set bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, and whisk until sugar has dissolved and egg whites are hot to the touch, about 3 minutes. Test by rubbing the mixture between your fingers; it should feel completely smooth.
  2. Transfer bowl to mixer stand. Using the whisk attachment, beat on high speed until mixture has cooled completely and formed stiff and glossy peaks, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add the butter, one piece at a time, and beat until incorporated after each addition. Don’t worry if the butter cream appears curdled after all the butter has been added; it will become smooth again with continued beating. Add vanilla, and beat just until combined.
  4. Switch to the paddle attachment, and beat on the low speed to eliminate any air pockets, about 5 minutes. 
  5. Add in the oreo cookie crumbs and beat to incorporate
  6. If using buttercream within several hours, cover bowl with plastic wrap, and set aside at room temperature in a cool environment. Or transfer to an airtight container, and store in the refrigerator, up to 3 days. Before using, bring buttercream to room temperature, and beat on the lowest speed with the paddle attachment until smooth, about 5 minutes.
  7. I personally DON’T switch to the paddle attachment, I keep it on the whisk. Never noticed any difference and then its less attachments to clean up. ha ha 
  8.  This makes enough to GENEROUSLY pipe frosting on to 24 cupcakes or maybe a little more less on 30. It will probably spread onto 40 cupcakes if going the spatula route.
