As a home baker…
I have not really yet mastered making perfect Pinterest-worthy cupcakes, but everything I have made has turned out to be delicious, mouthwatering, and satisfying. To be honest, I have flopped twice while baking cake but never failed once to make cupcakes. I am an Indian, specifically a South Indian, and this cupcake was a personal achievement for me because, as a home baker, after two modifications, I finally cracked a recipe that even a non-expert baker could follow. So my baking is effortless, making it easier for Indians to relate. My goal is to make baking easy and stress-free by not worrying about the appearance of the treats I am attempting to create. If nothing goes well, i can still call it a ‘deconstructed’ dish as long as the taste is perfect.
