Orange Poppy seed cupcake



It’s quite difficult to find the black poppy seeds here in Singapore
That said you must be wondering how I managed to bake Poppy seed cupcake!!
It was during my last business trip to San Diego that I got it..someone gifted this to meJ
I actually don’t remember when I mentioned about Poppy seeds to Ada[ my colleague from SD]
It was such sooo sweet of her to remember that and give me a pack of poppy seeds on my last day in SD.
I have to say Ada and Pierre are such a sweet couple..They set aside one entire weekend for us
..Took me and my colleague out for a fun filled outing ..some good food and above all there was a surprise at the end of the day
Knowing my love for desserts they took me to an extraordinary place..The extraordinary dessertsJ Just one word to describe it…Seventh heaven
So this is for you guysJ Hope you njoy the visual treat !!
