    I tried it and this was absolutely fantastic! My husband gobbled it up! I used my big cupcake pan (6 cupcakes). I made as directed. I halfed the frosting and it was plenty. I didn't sift the powdered sugar and it came out fine -- nice and creamy. I also didn't have cardamom and it still smelled and tasted very much like chai. I can't wait to find cardamom in the store and make this again. An absolute keeper! Light, fluffy, moist and delicious. Thanks for posting!
