Instructions
For Cupcake​
Step 1: Preheat the oven at 180 °C for 10 minutes.
​Step 2: In a mixing bowl sieve all the dry ingredients together – all-purpose flour (maida), sugar, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Mix them well.
​Step 3: Mix the milk with vinegar and keep aside for 5 minutes. The milk will curdle to form buttermilk. Now add color to this mix.
​Step 4: Separately whisk the wet ingredients - prepared buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla essence.
​Step 5: Add it to the dry ingredients and mix well with a spatula or with electric beater till there are no lumps.
​Step 6: Now pour the batter in a cupcake mould and bake at 180 °C for about 15 minutes or until done.
​Step 7: Remove and cool
For Cream Cheese Frosting​
Step 1: In an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Begin adding powdered sugar, creaming thoroughly after each addition.
​Step 2: Mix Vanilla extract in the cream.
​Step 3: Continue adding powdered sugar until frosting has a pearly sheen and thick, gooey yet spreadable consistency
Notes
​1. You must use a brand of heavy cream that whips very easily to stiff peaks.
​2. If the cream you are using don’t form the stiff peaks easily, whip the cream separately till it forms the stiff peaks and then fold with cream cheese.
