Cricket mini cupcakes

Masala chai comes first to my mind when I think about rain. Add a spicy deep fried to it and it’s a delightful treat for sure! But at times, I crave for sweet treats too. Baked goodies are perfect – who wouldn’t love a chewy gooey cookie or brownies?! Cupcakes are great too, now a days I prefer mini cupcakes over regular cupcakes. Mini ones are the perfect size, regular cupcakes are way too big for me.

The cupcakes here were baked for a cricket related occasion. My husband and my son are crazy cricket fans (like most Indians), so this is a cake that appeals to them a lot.

The recipe is Hot Milk cake, my go to vanilla cake recipe. You can use any buttercream you like, I have used my regular American buttercream recipe. Once you frost the cupcakes, you have to smooth it down a little to get a dome. Cover with red fondant, smooth it out. Using the backside of a knife, press a small line in the middle of the cupcake. With white food coloring, draw the stitching pattern using a toothpick. Let it dry and serve!
