Just about everybody knows somebody who makes cupcakes these days.Actually I have come across many blogs that uses cupcakes as their theme in blogging.No wonder it is so famous that people are choosing to have cupcakes at birthday parties and weddings.

This recipe of cupcake is adapted from Jean Francois Arnaud ,a MOF pastry masterchef based in France and a sugarwork arist.You can check out his site here.As for the topping it is something of my own creation.The cupcakes were bouncy ,soft to the touch and I will not hesitate to make it again and again.
