Vanilla Cup Cake with coco butter frosting

As the year begins the tension of exam starts especially when you have children who are appearing for the boards.  We were just waiting for the exams to get over. Then start with the next waiting i.e. results. We were eagerly waiting for my daughter (Sanjna)  grade 12 results this year. I have this wonderful opportunity to bake these lovely cup cakes  as  give aways  for the celebration. The reason being my daughter has got 85%.  I am sure everyone will want to see my princess right J

Infact this cup cake recipe was sent to me by my neice (Mrs Sindu Pandalai, The cup cake factory). She bakes yummy  cup cakes.  Thank you so much Sindu J. I baked few batches to get  60 cup cakes and now left out with 5m more, I baked  vanilla with choco frosting and chocolate cup cake with cream cheese frosting. BTW  my hands are not good on the frosting skills. Will have to learn that skill as its really interesting.

Somehow I felt the chocolate  cup cake was not upto the mark and I feel I need to redo it one more time and then I will post the recipe for that along with the cream cheese frosting.  However, The vanilla cup cake was really soft and yummy. For some of the cup cakes I stuffed them with choco chips. That was indeed treat for the kids. Anyways you guys can go ahead and try making it as its very easy to bake.
