I have mentioned this before itself, that hubby is not a big cake fan. To be frank he haven't tasted most of my cakes. Can you believe that. He is my biggest critic, i wanted him to taste all my foods and give a honest critic for that. And he truly does for all food, but not cakes. So i decided and came up with a plan.
Couple weeks back, i decided to try my hands on blueberry lemon cupcakes. So i called hubby and asked him to help me in this. He too came and made the entire thing.I measured all the ingredients and I stood beside him and took pictures of it. He made the batter and poured it into the muffin cases and put it in the oven. Then he was so impatient, he kept on asking me when it will be ready, i told him to wait and finally after 35 mins i took the cupcakes out of the oven and took two of the cakes from it and gave him to taste. You know what comment i got from him, "OMG IT IS JUST MELTING IN MY MOUTH, IT IS SO SOFT"
And yes this cupcakes just melt in your mouth and it has a amazing lemony flavour and taste to it. You have to try it to enjoy the taste. And one more thing, if you want your kids or even kid like hubby to eat any of their hated stuff, just ask them to help you and make it. This way they will taste it for sure..
