Hello bloggy mates…
Its been more than 1 whole month since I have actively blogged.. Have been thro a sickness stride of 2.5 weeks suffering from Flu followed by Tonsillits and bonus was conuctivits. Took me whole of 1 week for recovery and regaining all the lost energy.. Just after tat got buzy with my Boyz Birthday celebration..Finally managed to click pics of this delightful cuppy cakes on my lil one’s bday..
On Fri nite , the day before the celebration , Lil V walks upto me at 11pm and says ” Are you making Muffins for me ??? ” I didnt know wot to say.. Muffin was not on my list for the birthday party… He walked up n down and asked me the same Q again .. Just decided to wake up from my lost thoughts and said.. ” 30 Min Love Pot …You will get it then .” I didnt want to turn down my lil’s request.. After all its his birthday too .. Made 4 batches of 6 Muffins.. finally.
Wondering what muffin to make ?? Remembered the lovely Vanilla Cakes with buttercream frosting on the Joy of Baking . Didnt think much ..and went on to replicate the recipe from there. Have altered wee bits to suit me right.
