When my dear friend R’s son got admission in the college of his choice, I was really excited. I had made up my mind to bake some Chocolate Cup Cakes for him and give it the day he was leaving. I was half way through making the batter when I realised that I got the days mixed up. 🙁 This was one of those weeks where I completely lost track of what day of the week it was. My friend and son were to leave on Friday and I had plans to give the cake on Thursday. I was under the impression that it was Thursday till I saw my son in his Friday uniform.I was so disheartened and upset.

As I was half through the process, thought it would be better to finish what I started. As the Boiled Chocolate Icing was already prepared, all I had to do was bake the cakes and do the decoration. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as I had some unexpected visitors that day. They loved the cupcakes so much that I packed a few for them.

I got the recipe for the cupcakes from Life, Love and Sugar. This recipe is definitely a keeper. 🙂
