Ahhh.... the joy of baking for kids..... They're just adorable.... That's Ciona.... She's a cute little kid who has this running joke with me... मिठाई से कपरे धोते हैं....['indian sweets are used to wash clothes' cause the small white ones look like bars or soap, n she loves to wash clothes.. all sorts of clothes, even washed clothes :-) ]
The rainbow icing was my experiment with leftover icing..... lesson learnt... butter icing in summers is very difficult to handle.... it's either too hot in the kitchen so it melts and doesn't hold shape or if put in the fridge... it hardens and doesn't flow well to ice the cupcakes.....
The heart shape cupcakes happened from the Mini Heart Silicone Wilton Baking Cups bought by my sister from USA.... They did give a nice shape to the cupcakes.... did have to use a knife though to wedge in the join on the top to make the heart shape more pronounced. Over all, was happy with the effect.
Had asked her mom to refrigerate these for storage and heat in the microwave for 10 seconds before eating, when i sent them over..... forget refrigerate.... They were polished off, the second the kids lay their hands on them. Ciona's teenage elder sister, disha refused to be photographed.[super conscious teens :-)]

Thank you Nachi di.
I couldn't wait for mom to even bring me a spoon to eat the yummy looking cupcakes.
It was the yummiest I ever had.
