Blackcurrant Cupcakes ( 黑加仑杯子蛋糕)

This is my first time of piping and frosting a cupcake. Lots & lots of fun on making them. Great to have this celebrating cupcake especially on this Mother's day! The pink cupcakes represented all mother's love and kindness . Happy Mother's day to my dearest Mum and all the mother in the world !

If the cupcake have risen too high, just cut off the top so that the top is flat and easier to pipe the frosting.
