Hola people! I am happy today.. super happy. Reason being the cupcakes….

It is for the first time that my cupcakes came out superb and simply out of the World… Yup.. i am feeling proud and surely flaunting it… 😀 But yes, all of you who love to cook would surely understand the true feeling behind my expressions… This was one of the bakes which I was trying to master since  ages and every time some or other issue cropped in.. But this time — No space for any issues! 🙂

Presenting my super moist and flavorful Vanilla Cupcakes with Peach frosting.

I have added simple spices like Green Cardamon and Nutmeg powder to give distinctive flavors to these cupcakes. You can add any of your choice of spices.

      1. What I would suggest – Buy a 2L pack of Riche’s heavy cream – It has a shelf life of more than 1 year and it’s the best. 5 mins whisking and the cream is whipped… 🙂 Just store it in freezer.
