- Buttercream cakes
- Green tea cakes
They say that it was discovered about 4000 years ago in China. It has really nifty health benefits, and it's tasty. I personally love Matcha, which is the superfine powdered/pounded-into-a-powder green tea stuff. You can use matcha for lots of neat things; the Japanese use it in their very intricate and beautiful Tea Ceremonies. Here's a few neat things that I've found on my Tumblr dashboard. By the way, if you're wondering where my Tumblr is, then...well there.

Anyway, matcha is becoming more and more trendy nowadays. I see it especially at school! As a matter of fact, a friend of mine, Andrionna, was in my class finishing up some things for her capstone project. She was doing a beautiful Japanese-inspired course with croquembouches and a matcha cake. I remember seeing the beautiful and vibrant green color and thinking to myself:
"Nature did that. We don't need colorful, fake dyes. We can make rainbows using what's naturally here!"

Despite what you may think of tea and green teas, Matcha has this beautiful mellow, semi-sweet taste that's near-perfect for desserts. Ready for some more pretty pictures? I am!
