I made these simple eggless vanilla cupcakes with chocolate buttercream frosting. These are simply irresistible and would be perfect for kids party as well. I tried this recipe from a book of Cupcakes and it is a wonderful recipe .As we don't use eggs I always looked for eggless baking recipes and when I found this recipe I was sure to try it . While searching the internet I found this interesting Campaign created by Foodpanda , the fastest growing online food portal of India ,to provide free mid meal to about 1.4 million under privileged school going children . In collaboration with Akshyptra foundation and ESPN cricinfo ,FoodPanda organized this campaign to support nutrition for people in need and understand the importance of healthy eating . In this campaign if you support your favorite team you will be providing meal to a child for one year. Isn't it wonderful job they are doing for community . Now coming back to the recipe .yum
