This Instructable will show you how to make these 100% edible tea cups with mini tea flavored cupcakes inside of them.
The recipe I used is for Chai Tea Cupcakes with Cinnamon Butter Cream Frosting, but you may choose any flavor to use or even experiment and fill them with a chocolate mousse or pudding and top with marshmallows to imitate hot cocoa! Have fun with it and make it your own, hope you enjoy!
Step 1: Supplies!
NOTE: The recipe for the frosting and cake will yield 55-57 mini cupcakes.
The supplies I am showing you will make 24 tea cups. So you will have to double the tea cup supplies if you want more than 24 tea cups for all the mini cupcakes you bake. Or just make regular mini cupcakes with it like I did as the 3rd grade class I was baking them for only consisted of 20 kids. Or you can also use the rest of the batter to make regular sized cupcakes after you baked the 24 mini cupcakes needed. It's up to you!
