Chai Latte Cupcakes With Cannabis Butter Cream


Chai Latte Cupcakes With Cannabis Butter Cream

Easy, tasty and deadly – these Chai Latte Cupcakes With Cannabis Butter Cream will leave you drooling for more.

I love the delicious, warm chai spices in these cupcakes like cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger.

Topped with a creamy-dreamy cannabis butter cream, it’s the ultimate in decadence for your tastebuds.

Pair them with a nice hot cup of cannabis coffee and you’ll feel like a million bucks. Mmm..mmmm I can already taste them!

Don’t get me wrong here, I love chocolate everything.

But sometimes I crave something a little… extra! That’s exactly what these cupcakes are.

Inspired by my love of chai lattes, this is a throwback to autumn, but a treat in the Spring/Summer.

When you combine creamy cannabis buttercream with the sexy spices included in this recipe, you may have a new favourite edible to bake! 

What Should I Know About These Chai Latte Cupcakes?

  • Easy-peasy: they are easy to make and easy to bake! The chai spice blend is warming and light – and it will add a layer of serious flavour to your cupcakes.
  • Texture: so soft, fluffy, and moist – you’ll win everyone over with these fluffy-puffy pot edibles.
  • Flavour: Chai might sound strange in a cupcake, but with the infusion of aromatic notes of warm spices, it’s a jolt of taste you’ll be begging to have more of.
  • Baking Time: you’ll need to steep the chai tea for about 30 minutes, and then make the batter and bake it for 20. It’ll take about an hour or so.

Cannabis Is The Star Ingredient

Well.. the spices are a very close second, but cannabis butter takes the cupcake here.

Before you jump in, do you have any cannabutter at hand or ready-made? If not, you’l need to whip up a batch or two.

I always suggest whipping up a bunch of batches of weed butter and freezing them. Labelling them is also a great idea so you can be mindful of the date and time it was created.

Here’s how:
