Baileys Cupcakes with Nutella centers and ganache


I love celebrating occasions whether small or big. Now that I can bake, I never miss a chance to cut a cake or in this case a cupcake.


In this virtual world, we meet so many people but none have clicked as much as this crazy gang of girls and a guy. Today we completed 1 month since we first met and in this one month we have become as close as family. Chatting non stop, meeting at the drop of a hat and supporting and encouraging each other.
