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.
