Happy Diwali!

Happy Diwali! This is our first year celebrating Diwali since Surya has been old enough to understand the holiday. We’ve been reading her Amma, Tell Me About Diwali (which I would recommend) and just lit diva’s together tonight. To make it even more special, we’re taking these cupcakes in for her pre-K class tomorrow. No, those aren’t boats as one friend asked. They are divas!

In the interest of full and fair disclosure, I didn’t make these. One thing I love about New York is that you can walk into a cupcake shop in the Flatiron District, tell them you want Diwali cupcakes for your daughters class and the non-Indian staff will say something culturally in-tune like “Oh, you want diyas?”  So thank you to the lovely staff at Crumbs who decorated these cupcakes with a diya design I sketched out and added all of the extra colors, squiggles and stripes.

Happy Diwali!
