Chai Latte Cupcakes

Brandi Kirkpatrick


Love ya Betty! I was wanting a "grown up" cupcake to bring to my (at the time) boyfriends Guard unit while they were getting things in order to go overseas. Since I love Chai and had it on hand it worked out lovely! There is something wonderfully comforting in these cupcakes! Also, the guys said I couldn't bring treats anymore or they would all be too fat to fit in their uniforms. :)
