♡ Swirl's & Heart Cake for Our Wedding Anniversary ♡

August is a month of ample significance for me & Nikhil and our wedding anniversary makes it super special :D. Right from the very beginning of this month, we had been super busy with our friends coming over on the weekends. Days were filled with fun frolic n good food. 
To make our special day still stand out, I had planned to bake a beautiful cake with a cute lil surprise inside - A little pink heart. I knew Nikhil would steal some glimpses of the decorated cake but the heart inside was a toughy! Luckily everything went as planned and the cake came out really well. The cake is quite rich,but you will still have your family/friends asking for second serves. The outcome will definitely make the baker happy...and not to mention the lucky people munching on it!

Homemade Granola ☼

Granola is quite simply combining many health foods and baking it to a crispier self. When we buy these at supermarkets, they usually come pricey and may not be exactly filled with our favorite bits. So batch up your own, by mixing in all your favorite nuts and seeds. You will definitely find it handy on most mornings ☼, to have a jar full of your favorite goodness in your kitchen!

✿ Butterfly Cupcakes ✿

"Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over,
it became a butterfly"
✿ Butterfly Cupcakes ✿

Butterflies symbolize transformation... they accepts massive changes as part of their month long life! Humans on another hand handle and welcome only selective changes. We must learn to keep faith,  from these tiny beautiful creatures :) We must try and spread happiness to all lives we touch... making this indeed a better place to live in.
OK! Philosophy 101 aside, these are simple cupcakes, made with lots of love and a bit of creativity. I had spotted these beauties at a local bakery and was dying to make them since then. So go ahead and transform plain cupcakes to wonderful things of beauty!

Blueberry Banana Muffins!!

Muffins are often eaten as breakfast. These gorgeous bakes are deliciously moist and low fat too :) I have to say I have not been a big fan of banana flavored bakes but for those who enjoy these; they are simply incredible! Except for the flour, rest of the ingredients scream healthy. I did read that we could try using other healthier flour options (maybe next time!). Summer here is bursting with fruits & berries in all colors and shapes and textures...making it very hard to resist any quick buys at stores ;) On a normal hurried morning, you can bite into one of these and wipe it off with a full  glass full of smoothie'ness... rest assured you should be quite set for a fresh and fabulous day!
