When life gives you many reasons to celebrate…..smile, pray and make a SWEET.
Diwali is coming and so I remain very busy with the preparations. It is quite a tiring task with all the Deepawali cleaning, blog writing, cooking, shopping, get-togethers, and much more.In all these tiring tasks baking acts as a stress buster for me …
So, I made these red velvet Diwali special cupcakes with chocolate toppers.
This makes 1 cake or 14 regular cupcakes or 30 mini cupcakes.Kids enjoyed the cupcakes.
Kids enjoyed the cupcakes.
You all can make for(maybe) a Diwali party or get together
Enjoy and a very happy Diwali.
