Whether you got cupcake or muffin. It would be a mini beauty of cake in it, which melt in your mouth with the sweetness it has. But as the rules goes every where, cupcakes is known to be "The cupcakes" if you got the tower like or flat frosting/icing over it. However muffin got nothing just a mini cup of slightly sweet cake which would be closer to bread texture. Usually cupcakes are categorized into dessert item because of being double in sweetness than muffins. While Muffins are consider to be everyday breakfast food and are healthy side of cake. Well, that's what I get to know from Internet folks. You Cupcake queens (or Muffins fairies) are welcome to correct me in the comments, anytime.

Ever since I bought new cupcake pan, this chocolate one is third time baked by me. My family isn't the fan of Icing over the Cakes, so I just leave them naked. They were simple, moist and decadent that even a non-chocolate-lover will like them. My brother-in-law reaction over these cup was unexpected, seriously. After taking a bite from bottom wrap cupcake he said something which I could dream of it only. "Why hadn't you participated in MasterChef Pakistan?" and there I go.. I gone totally kind of WOW. Me and Masterchef...? Well, tell you the truth, family always overestimate you, no matter what. While others may end up underestimating you that will hurt your feelings badly. That's Life, I guess.
