Apple Cupcakes

One of the teachers appreciation gifts I made were these apple cupcakes. I know I have posted this recipe before here, but this time, I thought I would post pictures of each step.

Bake your favorite cupcakes. I chose white cake so that it would resemble an apple when bitten.

Take mini donuts and

Slice them in half.

Prepare your frosting with red paste coloring. I tried regular food coloring as well as red gel coloring, but nothing makes it more red than using paste. I use Wilton's brand.

Prepare your candy.

I pulled the chocolate tootsie roll and cut it in half. In the end, it looks like a golf T. The apple tootsie roll was flattened with a rolling pin and then cut into a leaf shape.

Take your cooled cupcake

and frost

add half of your donut

and refrost, covering the donut

Take red sugar sprinkles

Sprinkle the red sugar over the frosting

Decorate your cupcake with the stem and leaf, and voila, you've made an apple cupcake.

Now you are ready to make a bunch more

For a nice touch, add a basket.

For easier transport, wrap in cellophane bags and deliver.
