Eggless Mummy Cupcakes

One more interesting and a spooky halloween bakes from my kitchen..After Eggless Spooky Witch Fingers, my long time wish of making mummy cupcakes is finally accompalished and i have to say big thanks to Nalini Suresh of Nalini's Kitchen for suggesting this mummy cupcakes for our this month's Home Baker's Challenge. The recipe Nalini suggested goes both for eggs and butter, since i dont want to make my cupcakes with eggs and butter, i skipped them both and replaced it with yogurt and flaxseed meal. Those chocolate cupcakes came out extremely spongy,super moist with a wonderful coffee flavour.

Also for the frosting, i went for mascarpone cheese frosting since i found that this frosting is very easy and less fatty when compared to the butter cream frosting. If you want something different and spooky for the coming Halloween celebration,just give a try to this spooky but cute and adorable addictive cupcakes. My kids enjoyed thoroughly this mummy cupcakes especially the mascarpone frosting.Sending to Srivalli's Cake Mela.
