I’m going to start off by letting you know a little about myself.
Born, raised and currently living in India. Baking is a passion. And even though I have absolutely no culinary background, it defines who i am. I absolutely love trying to create new things, experiment and keep myself challenged. I’m overzealous and extremely passionate. This blog is going to be a rant of an amateur baker.
I baked on every single day last week. The idea is to keep trying new recipes, new methods and keep challenging myself to get better at what I love… baking.
I’m sharing a recipe of Espresso Fudge Cupcakes. I do not know whom to thank for this recipe as i found it scribbled in one of my old books.
The icing to go with these airy cupcakes is Jamie’s (Lifesafeast) Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
