Your cupcakes Look soft, just like chiffon texture.

Looks nice and soft. Btw when you state rock melon paste, is it freshly mashed melon?

Hi DG,

Thanks, this is soft but the texture is not like chiffon.

Hi Busygran,

Thanks, it is a thick rock melon essence with colouring.

Hi Anncoo,

If you prefer a stronger rock melon aroma, you can add more rock melon paste as mine is very light. Happy baking. :)
