December for most of us is always the craziest part of the year. With Christmas around the corner, New Years Eve, the Big Indian wedding season, insane number of parties and events to go to and not to mention the lovely weather, which makes you want to eat much more than just the usual. There’s no way you can stick to eating healthy and maintain your Diet plans. Specially if you’re the kind, who leans a little more towards the sweeter side. Cupcakes are always the easiest to go for, as you don’t have to polish off the whole thing yourself. Keep a couple to satisfy that craving and pass on the rest ! I chose to make these cupcakes over the whole cake, smaller potions are always better and prettier too. And its always good to share the love and sweetness. And thats just what I did with these. They make the perfect thing to carry to a Christmas party too.
