Hokkaido Chiffon Cupcakes

Finally attempted this popular hokkaido chiffon cupcakes which I've pending for very long! I actually been waiting to get hold of some hokkaido fresh milk to make this little cupcakes :) I've savoured some of the hokkaido cupcakes made by Catherine and it tasted so good that I decided to use hers recipe rather than google for any other recipes :) Instead of filling the cupcakes with custard cream, I've created a different fillings with some of my balanced mango curd & homemade banana chocolate jam!! My kids and hubby simply love this cupcakes and they can consume 2 at a go as the cupcakes are rather small in sizes ^.^
