Easy Hokkaido Cupcakes
Hokkaido Cupcakes are very popular now, because the texture is light and cottony.
Initially I thought it is hard to bake, so I grabbed the opportunity to learn at The Baking Studio. After the 2 hours workshop, I realized it is actually very easy to make, and now I know why it's called Hokkaido Cupcake. You want to know the answer?
Actually this cupcake is originally from Malaysia. Why Hokkaido? As this cupcake has cream filling and icing sugar topping, it signified ice mountain in Hokkaido.
To date, this is my third batch and always successful. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
