Happy Diwali! Also known as the Festival of Lights, Diwali traditionally celebrates the triumph of good over evil, and is celebrated by millions of people across the world. It is significant to the practitioners of Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism. While the holiday and festival is marked by lighting oodles of small diyas, or oil filled clay pots, and by eating traditional South Asian sweets, we thought that cupcakes could also join in the Diwali festivities! Searching for Diwali cupcake decorating ideas? We’ve got you covered!
One easy way to make Diwali cupcakes is by infusing the cake batter with traditional Indian flavors, such as cardamom and saffron. Or, create chai cupcakes by adding chai spices directly into your vanilla batter. To top off your Diwali cupcake decorations, we love this idea by The Cupcake Place. These creative pastry chefs designed these Diwali inspired cupcakes by adding fondant discs intricately hand painted with mehndi designs. Mehndi, also known as henna, is the beautiful plant-based tattoo that is applied to the hands and feet of brides and women celebrating a festival. Henna makes for a perfect Diwali cup cake decoration as the designs are quite elaborate and gorgeous! To complete your Diwali cupcake stand decorations, place your cupcakes in our Moroccan inspired cupcake wrappers, which will accentuate the henna designs.
The Dress My Cupcake family wishes you a very Happy Diwali and much happiness, good health and prosperity for the new year!
