I was invited recently to a fun cup cake making session with Chef Hafizullah Baig . These cup cakes were very different from the regular ones. The frosting was all desi tasting ingredients and was very innovative. I just loved them .I had taken my daughter too the workshop and guess what not only me but she too enjoyed the event a lot. She infact loved decorating her own cup cakes.

He even shared his recipes of cake and frosting with us and wait there is some good news for you all too. I am sharing all those recipes with you all friends ...

But before i share the recipes.. have you ever thought how the cakes evolved ? Whats the difference between Cupcake and Muffin ?

The cake evolved in earlier 19th century in the United States. According to food historians have yet to point, exactly where the name of Cups cake originated. There are two Theories coming up… 1) the cake were originally cooked in cups 2) The ingredients used to make the cups cakes were measured by the cups.

Cup cakes were convenient because, they get cooked much quicker than larger cakes. cakes looks similar to Muffins. But, there is huge difference between cakes and Muffins.

MUFFINS :

  • Are Dense, closer to Bread texture
  • Can be served as savory or sweet
  • Served without toppings
  • Flour is roughly stirred in all at once
  • Served during B’fast

CUP CAKE

  • Very lighter in texture
  • Only in sweet version can be served
  • Often Iced or Frosted
  • Incorporating flour into batter smooth
  • Served as a dessert on special occasion

Off we go with the recipes ...
