“Symbol of Edible Love” and a Valentine contest

This sunday I woke up to a very sweet news that SinAMon has been featured in Bangalore Mirror in an article on Cupcakes and Valentines… this is how the article starts

“There’s a gentleman in the city (whose name we cannot reveal because that would blow his cover) who is meticulously planning a Valentine’s Day gift for his partner: 18 cupcakes, each with a delicious creamy alphabet swirled on its face; you line them up and it would read – ‘I LOVE YOU **********(no, we can’t tell you his lady’s name either… for obvious reasons. But we can tell you this: it’s is a pretty long name). Baker Monika Manchanda of Sin-AMon is giving shape to this man’s new age symbol of love. “

    Not fair. If I win the contest, why should my friends from B’lore get yummy cupcakes without doing anything. Deliver outside B’lore, please!!

    1. Liking fbpage for long already 🙂
    2. Aankhon hee aankhon mein ishara ho gaya…. Eyes 🙂
    3. On a dentist visit day…esp after tooth extraction 😉 😉 hehehe (so i get to eat even after gifting them)
    4. A cupcake every hour on your partner’s bday for your partner would be most romantic 🙂
    5. My idea of flavor would be Besan(chickpeas) peanuts

    That’s such great news Monika… I hope I win the cupcakes 🙂 I’ve liked the FB page
    1) His straightforward yet charming behaviour
    2) A friend’s first ever hangover due to the previous night’s pubbing
    3) The most romantic thing to do with a cupcake is to have a diamond ring sticking out of the icing and to gift your loved one with it.
    4) Wackiest flavour of cupcakes would be ginger-mint-lime cupcakes 🙂

    Hi Monica this is am gr8 one..

    I already follow u on fb from a long time.

    The 1st thing that attracted me was his him really, i dont have any mushy answers but it was overall him a simple gal fell in love with a simple guy.

    For me any occasion is good for a cupcake but oh ya i would have been so happy if anyblody had gifted me this box just after my delivery of my daughter would be on the clouds then.

    The flavor would me fennel seeds , really nout sure howz tht gonna taste but relly weird it would be.

    3.during a break up gift some boozy cupcakes.. 😉
    4. whacky flavor would be sambar flavored cupcakes with spicy mashed potatoes as the frosting!

    1. Done! 🙂
    2. Was swept off my feet by his sexy butt that looked edible ( I swear!!) in the black trousers he wore! 🙂
    3. whacky would be when a woman (could be me 🙂 ) doesn’t get her ‘cup’ size and is frustrated (must be me!)
    4. The whackiest flavor I can think of is this: say sambhar flavored cup cake for a south indian friend or a raajma stuffed/or dressing cupcake for a northie pal. Or vice-versa would be bad either! Imagine!! 🙂 🙂

    1] Liked FB page
    2] – His french beard….at that time I was going through a phase where I used to find guys with french beards cute…..Now I detest any kind of facial hair on my man – it tickles!
    – After a root canal…when you are only supposed to eat soft stuff!!!! Yes I have been the recipient of this!
    – My hubby loves watching sports so probably hide folded tickets for the latest game inside a sports themed cupcake?

    Recently moved from Blore to US (booohoooohooo) but if I win I know my sis in Blore would totally love the cupcakes!
