This post has been sponsored by Cremin, the baker’s secret. Cremin is a ready-to-whip icing base for the pretty part of baking. It can be flavoured, used as filling, melted as glaze, the opportunities are really endless. Cremin has been used by professional bakers for years, but has just come to Canadian Costco locations. The first appearance at Costco in Canada will end May 31, 2015, so don’t wait!

If you would like to see a video of Cremin creations, we encourage you to check them out on Youtube.

We decided to make some yummy cupcakes to test out how Cremin really performs. Below you will find a homemade cupcake recipe with Earl Grey Tea Latte flavoured icing made with Cremin. We would love to hear what you think about this recipe in the comments.

  • 1 cup butter; softened

  • 1 1/2 tsp. pure Vanilla extract
  • 2 cups Cremin
  • 1/2 cup milk

Have your oven pre-heated to 350 degrees F, and line a muffin tin with paper liners. Distribute cake mixture to each muffin cup evenly and bake for 20 – 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. 

Cool on wire rack.

For the Earl Grey Tea frosting:

In a large bowl add 2 cups of Cremin and whip on high for at least 5 minutes. You must make sure there are no solid pieces left. Slowly add in the tea and milk mixture and whip for an additional 5 minutes. Cremin was easy to use and tastes delicious. It really is a nice quick ‘cheat’ to making frosting. It is sweet, but not too sweet, just the way I like it.

 These would be perfect for a tea party, or just for a sweet treat. The Cremin is a great alternative for traditional buttercream. It’s light and fluffy, just sweet enough and very versatile.
