SPPPOOOOKKKYYYYYYYYY HALLOWEEEN!!!!!! Hahhaha so much fun ahead and the festival season takes off from now on and for the little ones to enjoy this Halloween I have Chocolate Almond Cupcakes with Pumpkin Frosting to present with lots of health and taste so that mommies are happy too…… 🙂
At my place its more of cute Halloween because my little one likes cute stuffs even for this occasion and so she decided the decoration for these cupcakes. Since she has developed chocolate love lately, I came up with chocolate cupcakes and of course how can I miss the nutrition and health part even for desserts. 🙂
It was fun making this dessert with Yashvi and she enjoyed mixing the batter and kept licking all that while mixing. I had to keep a close watch over her or else I would not have gotten any chance to click these delectable cupcakes 🙂 . I decided to sweeten the cupcakes naturally with fruits and avoided adding sugar because it’s Halloween and all our little ones would be having a sugar rush with all the candy bags from neighborhood. 🙂
Pumpkins are at their peak right now and so what better way to include fresh pureed pumpkins into dessert and hence I made egg free vegan pumpkin frosting with date syrup and kept the sugar levels to the minimum. Here I used vanilla powder which sweetened the frosting and gave a delicious vanilla flavor to it thereby enhancing the taste and fragrance of pumpkin. We enjoyed fluffing the frosting and though it was messy later on for me to clean up yet it was a hilarious event in my kitchen. Yashvi had this frosting all over her face and just couldn’t stop laughing at her own self and as you all know laughter is infectious 🙂
I kept the decoration part quite simple because Yashvi is just 3 and she chose the icing decoration which she could decorate herself. But feel free to decorate these cupcakes as per your choice and make it as spooky as possible. I can however vouch for the taste. It’s delicious and you can’t stop with just one cupcake.
Happy Halloween!!!!!!!! 🙂
