  1. DG, the cupcakes look inviting with the marshmallow on top! I'll eat the cake and leave the buttercream for you, LOL!

  2. wow..this is so nice and lovely...can i have 1? ^^

  3. it's so rare to see a cupcake recipe with the yolks and the whites beaten separate. I bet this cake was chiffon soft!

  4. LOL! i was laughing at tze's comment..i dont mind eating the buttercream!

  5. Ah Tze & Lena,
    LOL .... next time I make this, should invite both of you, so definitely I don't worry of left over buttercream :D

    No left for this time, sure next time, will invite you together with Ah Tze & Lena heheheeh ...

    A bit troublesome doing the separated egg right? Ya ya ... it is soft just like chiffon :)

    Thanks for your nice words :)
