Cricket & Cupcakes

India’s playing? Apart from going out to a Sports bar or reclining on the sofa with the T.V. remote in hand, how else do you support the team? Surprisingly, Cricket cupcakes are unusually good when teamed with your celebratory alcoholic concoctions. And when India wins and if some cupcakes are still there in the fridge, you can take them out for a grand celebration.

Here’s what you’ll need to make what one of our colleagues made for the match yesterday. She called them the ‘Cinnapple Muffins’. They were delicious.

  • 1 Egg for 6 cupcakes
  • 1 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of castor sugar
  • 3/4 cup of apples
  • 1/4 cup of vegetable oil
  • 3 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp of honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence

The Steps:

  • Line the cupcake tray with cup cake holders.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl.
  • Whisk the egg well for 5 minutes.
  • Add the milk and oil to the whisked egg.
  • Add all the dry ingredients to the mixture of the egg, milk and oil.
  • Add the cut pieces of apples with the honey and vanilla essence.
  • Pour the mixture into the cup cake holders.
  • Cook for about 20 minutes at 180 degrees in the oven
  • Frost when the cupcakes are completely cool.

Serve them with some Cricket-icing.

Sher Singh Story

It’s surprising how we all like to shop the international brands and yet know in the back of our minds that they’re all actually ‘Made in India’. Not that there’s anything wrong with it, but it’s a little odd that we think Indian brands don’t make quality garments like our international favorites.

Well, it’s not true. At least, it isn’t now. Sher Singh, India’s first global lifestyle brand is here to dispel that myth. Sher Singh is made in India, and may we add, proudly.

What does ‘PROUDLY, Made in India’ mean to you?

The 1947 Story

“At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new… We end today a period of ill fortune, and India discovers herself again.”

– Jawaharlal Nehru (Speech on Indian Independence Day, 1947)

Celebrating the epic Indian heritage, the 1947 polos, in black, navy and white, pay tribute to the great leaders who made it all possible.

We believe it’s more than just a shirt. It’s our pride.

Sher Singh, In the Details

After all it’s the little things that matter.

1. The Tri Color Collar because we love who we are. We hope you proudly raise your collars.

2. Look for the iconic Sher Singh crest on your shirt. The two golden lions stand for the Great Indian Pride and the bats represent the gentleman’s heritage.

3. The ‘Cricket Ball‘ Button: This little detail, almost a secret affair, at the end of the placket signifies your crazy love for the game.
