Diya Cupcakes for Diwali

Diwali the festival of lights is nearly here.As my daughters grow older, I feel the need to make it
a special celebration for them, so as they grow up they can value and cherish the festival as I do.
Its hard for them to feel the excitement, as most other children around them dont share the celebrations. I have made it a point to have a Diwali party every year were we do a gift exchange with other children(which they really enjoy).
We love baking cupcakes. Here are some Diya cupcakes we baked over the weekend.
I made the Flame with fondant and a leaf shaped cookie cutter & orange food coloring.
The gold cupcake liners give the cupcakes a diya look.
