I had wanted to explore tea-flavored cake, since it happened across my Pinterest wall. A few concerns:
- I didn't have Earl Grey
- I didn't want to make an entire cake of one flavor
- My kids don't like sharing
Instead of Earl Grey, I managed to get:
A spiced chai latte mix
An herbal black cherry tea

Using tea for flavoring really does work with the cakes and, I think, is a better option than the artificial stuff.
Hope this helps.
