Oh.My.God! Time for cupcakes!!

I had such an amazing day today! I got the new boxes for our cupcakes and cookies! I baked a batch of cupcake sampler boxes today. It had all our new flavors, including chocolate ganche, mocha with a cream center, coconut and honey, strawberry, mexican chocolate, and apple cinnamon with cinnamon cream cheese (to order you cupcakes call on us at +91-9945794281 or visit our Facebook Page).
 This evening I got to walk around brigade road. I haven't done that in a while and I had the most amazing people by my side and that's what made the walk super special. It could not have got any better, really. I was like a happy little kid, walking around, hugging and holding onto my boxes of cupcakes real tight. It was that perfect Bangalore weather. I ate momo's and hopped around puddles. I love that feeling when you walk down brigade road and walk past hundreds of people. You walk past so many strangers, so many faces; but in a strange way I always found that comforting. It's like walking by other stories, walking by other lives,  and getting a glimpse of it, from that moment of eye contact, from that bit of conversation you hear as they pass by.
   This time around my walk on Brigade road was slightly different for me though, I was not lost in thoughts of 'what if?' I was living the life I was born to live. I am alive and loving each moment of it. I am living my dream and nothing as looked this beautiful. So, this time as I walked by other's lives, I did not pause and wish I could walk in someone else's shoes. I will never swap this for anything. Yummy!

Love and Happiness!

Starry Mocha Cake

Mocha Cake: (This cake is for my dear Grandmother, I miss her a lot. I wish she was here to taste this cake. I know she would have loved it; she loved coffee)....So this is a rich, moist chocolate cake with a coffee cream center, frosted with a mocha cream and topped with a generous amount of chocolate curls. To add some dazzle there are little stars sprinkled on top. Fun! Hope you like it :)

Lots of love and Happiness...

As always don't forget to visit out Facebook Page :) Thanks!

Hungry?'s new packaging and the new cake! :)

Chocolate Chocolate Cake (Sabu Cake): Moist dark chocolate cake with a thick layer of fudge and chocolate ganache on the top :). This cake is named after my best friend Sabina, for all those nights I got her on a sugar rush after eating chocolate cake; For all our 'scrub away' parties and for all the love we share. She is one of the most amazing people to walk this earth and I would be so lost without her because no one can really tolerate a girl singing 'like a rolling stone,' out loud,  while trying to cross a busy road. Love you Macheee Kuttiee :)

Butter Cookies

So, these are the super yummy, melt in mouth butter cookies I baked up for this Diwali's treats. These cookies are super light, crisp and flaky. They are perfect for Diwali, they look like little sugar duster marigolds. These bags contain about 20 cookies each and will go into a pretty box custom made for "Hungry?". I am still waiting for my boxes to get ready but I will be putting pictures of them up as soon as they are delivered. Exciting!! :)

Also, Hungry? has old school clown and animal cake toppers! Just like Amma used to make them :) How fun! :D 

So, this is my Diwali gift for our little company. Every penny counts and I think this is a super yummy investment. Its one of those plastic baggie sealers. I kinda went a little crazy with it this morning, sealing everything I possibly can. It's the most exciting thing ever! haha That says a lot about myself. Sigh!

The new Logo!

So what do you think?? :)

Mana Cupcakes!

So hey New flavor of cupcakes are out! My friend Mana once told me about Lindt Chili Chocolates and I have been addicted ever since! She suggested that I try making chili chocolate cupcakes one day and they became a massive hit. This is my chili chocolate with a twist and I am naming it after my lovely friend Mana.. (her name also happens to mean 'food from heaven.' Perfect!) Mana is not a very "frosting" person but she tried the cupcake and said that she loved it nonetheless... I hope you like it too.
