Pink Cupcake with Whipped Cream Frosting

With Valentines around the corner I felt like making something alongside the celebration. I initially thought of making a chocolate tart with a chocolate glaze.It looked super yum. But later I realised for making that I need a spring form tart pan, whereas I had a usual tart pan :-( I was literally feeling devastated.That feeling wherein you have all the ingredients lined up and no apparatus!!! But then I thought No1 I will bake something today. And thats when I got reminded of Pink Cupcakes that I saw on FoodGawker some few days back. 

Went and checked the recipe. Ingredients- Check! Liners-Check! Difficulty - Super Easy... I went ahead and baked them. It was the most moist and supersoft cupcakes I have ever baked! A little regret that I could have added a little more colour. But still they were all pinky, softy and yummy!!! Try this recipe out with or without the food colour because trust me, they are super soft!!!
