Zebra..in my Cupcake!!

It was a fun Birthday party on Saturday,had a whale of time.I had really forgotten how it feels to be among kids,being in their company and how fun it is to think from their point of view!!

Vicky,son of our dearest friends cum neighbours’ was celebrating his 7th Birthday on September 12th.He is very special to us,being born the same year we got married,he literally grew up before our eyes.He comes to us when he gets a new toy..to “showoff’,thinks we are of same age and challenges us in games.Ajay enjoys a game of football with him and at the end of it I cant say who is younger of the lot:).

He wanted a Lion King cake for his birthday,hence I decided to bake him a Zebra for company.Made Zebra cupcakes following the same recipe as this.But the outcome was not so Zebra-ish,the looks were more like marble cupcakes.Despite using the smallest spoon,I could put only four spoons,two chocolate and two vanilla each.So the stripes were not quite evident.The cupcakes were gone before you could spell Z-e-b-r-a,so I am not complaining.


Here is the recipe,I made the same quantity and got around 40 regular sized cupcakes.

  16. Divya,i thought Zebra cakes are marble cakes only.I did not know they were different.Some sites tell us that they are same.Well whatever name it is ,taste is the only thing that matters.I have already bookmarked your earlier version.The cupcakes are perfect.
