Here kids go for summer job for a month from when they are 16 years.
And when Shyama turned 16 she coudn't go as we went to India for holiday, and she was always complaning that her friends are doing summer job and she coudn't.
So from last year she has been doing summer job in a private owned shop and there are 4 women who works there and they all are really nice to her and they like her a lot.
And this August she also have been working in the same shop and some morning she ask me Mama will you make a cake for me to take for coffee ( the shop is just 5 minutes walk from our home and she comes for lunch) and on a short notice the one thing I always makes are cupcakes as they are easy and fast to make.
And the ladies there just love cupcakes of course S loves it too.So this is one of the cupcakes I made for her to take for afternoon coffee.
