Mars Fudge Mud Cakes

I have used the following sentence before for one of my dishes....Iam going to use it again

I had this.......died......went to heaven.....and came back coz I knew there was more waiting for me.

I mean seriously ...this is EVIL mud legs felt weak after eating this....this was so so sooooo good, and I had double the fun coz I baked it with my sister Devs. We prepared the batter and put it in the oven..I told Devs..... "its going to take 20 minutes to bake" , Devs said..... "Okay" and I left the kitchen ,when I returned after 10 minutes, Devs was sitting on a chair right in front of the oven just staring at the cupcakes...

This is a MUST TRY for everyone, you won't be disappointed (I don't like to advertise my dish much ...but this one is worth it). So Shireen  (Ruchik Randhap) thank you for commenting on all my post  and you see I wasn't exaggerating when I said that " I had 4 cupcakes after eating the healthy fish :)"   in my previous post :)))

  6. Hi Charishma, thnx for ur comment, actually I bought the star shaped silicon moulds from crawford market, mumbai, but u get in shoppers stop (Home Stop) too which is marketed by Sanjeev Kapoor..havent seen star, but he has many other teddy bear (which i have but never used), rose etc..the star shaped ones are pretty firm and they dont expand and they are damn neat cuz u dont need to grease them etc, cleaning is easy too..u just have to place them on the baking you would keep ur regular baking tin..nothing different, but yes, when you pour in the batter, depending on the shape of the mould they may slightly topple (star shape has a small base)

  7. The name itself is tempting enough... the cupcakes look so damn delicious..
