Me : "No...I still need to take some pictures..", "Mummy....why so slow?...." >.< So happy when he finally got to savour a cupcake and told me NICE! Kids are kids...anything taste sweet they will say nice hahaha...but this green tea chocolate cupcakes indeed taste moist and nice lah. Though only a teaspoon of green tea powder is added into the batter, the flavour is good!
