Suprise Cupcake

 
Now that I have introduced myself and the topic of the blog, I will give you a recipe of an in teresting cupcake.This cupcake is very special because inside of it has a little of strawberry jam, and also has a great taste because of the combination of the jam with the vanilla cake and the strawberry frosting. Although it may look very hard to cook, the recipe is very easy to follow.

If you don’t have any gift for your special person in Valentine’s day, this cupcake would be the solution to your problem. It has the special feeling that you need for a lovely gift on a lovely day.
