Indian Tricolour Cupcake (Republic Day special)

Indian Tricolour Cupcake is a Cupcake in three colours that resemble the Tiranga, the Indian flag. As everyone is aware, the three colours of our national flag are saffron, white, and green.

We will incorporate the same colours into our Indian Tricolour Cupcake. The purpose is to honour the national holiday and the spirit of liberty. Before we start baking our tricolour cupcakes, let’s talk about the fundamental framework.

Making the base is the first step in creating these cupcakes. It has green in colour. The cupcake will, in essence, be entirely green. We’ll use buttercream frosting to decorate using the colours white and saffron.
