Vanilla cup cakes and a surprise meeting with a blogger

I made this cup cakes for a party at my
friend's place . I adopted this from
Joy of Baking.
And before going to the
recipe I like to share my sweet surprise
meeting with a blogger Sukanya Ramkumar
of Hot and sweet bowls . It was a get together
at one of my friend's place who I know in my daughter's
school.I was introduced to Sukanya and few other
friends . Since I already know Sukanya is also from
my city and our area I was in dilemma whether she would
be our blogger friend . And later on with the conversation
I asked her husband's name...the minute she spells out
I was more happy and the fun started from there.It was
a pleasant surprise to meet her without planning out.
And now to the recipe...
