I'm sure you know Divya. You cant miss all the beautiful cakes that she is baking these days. However I don't think many of you know the fact that we were batch mates in college :). Yes, we were batch mates for 5 years. But I guess we've talked more in the past 1 or 2 years, mainly through our comments on each others' blog, rather than those 5 years. Sometimes when you look at it, life is so strange right? 7-8 years back if you asked me about cooking, I would be staring at you as if you were an alien. And if you asked me about blogging, I would pretend I didn't hear you because I didn't even know what that meant. Leave alone blogging I didn't even know about the existence of Google! Ya now you are staring at me as if am an alien ;)
Honestly speaking, I'm generally scared of all technology stuff. Am very bad at it. So to hide my ignorance and fear about handling new technology, I decided to protest against it :) Ok, now that's one honest thing about me. Miriam gave me an honest badge and tagged me to write 10 honest things about myself. I usually write only honest stuff here, I don't lie to you, so nothing new to write about ;) Thanks Miriam, appreciate it a lot. Thanks again for all the sweet things you've written about me :)
Ok, now back to Divya, these days we talk at least once in a week or so. It's all because of food & blogging. Divs blog is celebrating second birthday and she has an event for the same, “The best chocolate cake event”. I thought I should participate in this, after all she is my batch mate and a fellow Theresian right :)? Also I liked the book she is giving away as a present. Divs, don't worry abut shipping to Bahrain, you can send it to my Cochin address ;) Once again wishing your blog many more wonderful birthday's! All the best dear! Divs, hope you like this.
The cupcake recipe is from Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook and the icing recipe is Hershey's “perfectly chocolate” chocolate icing. Like all other cake recipes here, this too is an easy one. This is a one-bowl chocolate cupcake recipe. Put together all the ingredients, mix it and the batter is ready. Sounds easy right? These are pretty moist & not too sweet, even with the icing. I also gave this cupcakes to one of our friends, when we visited them and they enjoyed it very much :). Hope you too will like it.
