Recipe: Nutella Blossom Cakes

(E)IMG_0021 (1)

Not too long ago, some photos of colourfully designed cupcakes have been bombarding my feed on Instagram. Despite ignoring the first few sightings of it with a mere thought of how cute it looks, its repeated appearance urged my curious mind to find out on what it really is and how it can be made. To my surprise, the difficulty level of it requires no more than a 10 year old’s baking skills, while the number of ingredients needed is significantly lesser than an average cupcake recipe.
