Death By Chocolate Cup Cakes

 HI

The name of this cake reminds me of the ice cream
joint in Bangalore. I am sure ever chocoholic who visits Bangalore will definitely
make a trip to this joint. My daughter makes sure that she has her chocolate
overloaded ice-cream whenever she is in Bangalore. Well she says that these cup
cakes are again a perfect choice for chocoholics.
