Strawberry & Green tea (macha) cupcakes

saw some raves about a perfect vanilla based cupcakes previously in cupcakestakethecake forum, and thot i should try them out!
i improvised the recipe to make them into 2 batches, 1 batch of strawberry cupcakes, and another batch of green tea cupcakes.
my bf bought me a punnet of my favourite strawberries, and they are so fragrant and pretty! i'm even thinking of eating them while in the office.. haha..
i made my own puree with these fresh strawberries & a little imagination, and it turned out that these strawberry cupcakes received really good comments! everyone commented they tasted light and fragrant! personally, i really like them.. (okay, i love everything to do with strawberries!!!) and definitely will bake them again!
as for the green tea, my previous attempt at green tea cupcakes didnt turn out too good. so, i decided to come out wif my own recipe. my sweetest boyfriend bought me a packet of japanese green tea powder and the green tea powder is really good. better den the previous one i've tried.
okie.. here's the pictures..
