Being the Foodie that I am, I love cupcakes and cakes (who doesn’t?). I used to search for the best cupcakes in and around the city to taste them. I was pretty surprised by how they were expensive than the normal cream cakes, but when it comes to food one shouldn’t ask too many questions. This continued for a while and I found out that these treats weren’t easy on my wallet. That was then I took a decision, that was to change my life!
Yes, I decided to give it up.
Wait, wait. I’ll make it clear. I decided to give up on the habit of buying cupcakes and decided to bake them on my own 🙂 So I got an OTG and started experimenting with cupcakes and cakes, and boy I was surprised (shocked) at how well they turned out.
Since a lot of recipes online kept confusing me, I stuck to the one that my friend had shared long back, and which had come well in the microwave oven when I tried baking.
So here you go 🙂
I always prefer writing down recipes in a language that I understand better, and with measurements I’m capable of understanding. (And when there is a nice colour pen around, why not write every little detail!)
So this was chocolate cupcake on Day 1, the vanilla cupcakes were pretty decent too.
And the week after, I tried the Vanilla Sponge cake. My mom loved it so you know how it must have been 😉
This is the first batch of the cupcakes, from the back to back baking that I did on Sunday! Phew!
(Not seen in picture, my folded hands, praying that the cupcakes would rise. God is great! )
Voila, here they are! Vanilla cupcakes :-), Want to taste? 😉
So, I read about pioneer woman’s frosting (Google Best Frosting ever Pioneer Woman) and decided to try.
Should’ve been thicker, still working on that.
And a small portion of my Experiments with Cakes on what was a truly wonderful Sunday! 🙂
So, I’m going to be baking for a few friends and family, since they think this is awesome. And will slowly graduate to more varieties. I’m so excited already 🙂
P.S. If you’ve come across any website that has amazing recipes (which you’ve tried), please do share it. Thanks 🙂
P.P.S : Another item checked on my wishlist. It’s about a new skill and I say Baking!
