choco chillie

Aaaah!!! Hello Ya’ll!!

So, firstly WELCOME TO MY BLOG!!!! 🙂 😀

I’m so excited to finally have my own website to show you all the scrummy desserts you can make at home.

I will be updating the blog every Sunday (Ohhh how I love my weekends as its the only time I get to bake! 😀 )

Oh and besides I’ll even share some crazy things I do on a regular basis (well, unintentional of course) to embarrass myself! :\

Now now! I really cannot help it okay!! I was born clumsy. I cannot walk two steps without getting hit by an inanimate object and occasionally human species.

Okay, I guess this is really not the way I should introduce myself. But anyways now that you do know about my clumsiness, lets CHANGE THE TOPIC!

You in?

yeah, me too! 😀

So, this week I made Dark Chocolate and Chili Cupcakes!!

Is it a weird combination?? Totally!!!!!!!!

Does it taste good???

ABSOLUTELY!!!!!! ❤

Okay, now I know chilies and chocolate is a weird combination but if it tastes good, then why not?

Oh!!! speaking of weird combos, people say jam and sauce go really well together!

That does not sound very appetizing, but I guess we’ll have to try that some day, whatsay?

ummm, yeahhhh maybe some other time! 😀

For now, tadaaaaaaaaaa!!!!
