Eggless Black Forest Cup Cakes

Chocolate cupcakes4


The irresistible Black forest cakes have always been on my dreams. Next to chocolate truffle, this is one best cake I always relish :)

A bite of the soft chocolaty cake along with a layer of fluffy fresh cream and cherries!!! ummmmmm.. sheer melt in the mouth ecstasy :)

I totally believe the proverb that says "Good things come in small packages" ;) Hence the ever delicious black forest cakes in the form of small and extra small cupcakes never fail to be called the best :)

Today is my little friend Poorni's birthday. :) Hence I wish to dedicate this Black forest cup cake post to the little princess and also wish her a great birthday and a lovely life ahead too :) Warm Hugs to you dear :)

Mini cup cakes were the highlight of the day. :)

I had got some cute looking mini muffin liners from Dubai and was pretty excited to use them while baking :)


Its just the same procedure that I followed to bake the cakes but reduced the cooking time to 13 mins.

They are literally bite sized and too cute :)

Hardly two cms tall muffins excited all of us at home :)

Instead of cherries, I used the sugar coated cumin sweet(Jeeraga mittai) on top of the cream to make the miniatures ;)
