Desserts are a vital part of my life, you may have realized it by now if you are a regular reader of my blog.
What I have today is a dessert of course and a dessert very close to my heart because it is made up of Gulab Jamun which happens to be my favorite Indian sweet.
I have always been fascinated towards shot glass desserts which have become widely popular off late.

last weekend my sister-in-law’s family came for lunch at my place.Their choice is Indian food. So, I decided to make this dessert with gulab juman in very special shot glasses.PicsArt_1492745282663

I used rose flavor cake for this trifle, and whipped cream, I avoided custard highlight gulabjamun..I am happy everyone liked it and also appreciated my dessert presentation idea ..happy me.

Make these for your kids or any social gathering at home or for any festival as this recipe gives an Indian touch too.PicsArt_1492745249284
