Believe it or not, I have never had a caramel apple. However, it is something I would love to try. I wonder if making them is a good activity to do with a 2 year old? I don’t think it would be messy at all (sarcasm with rolling of the eyes here). But that’s the fun of it so if we do, I will be sure to let you know how it goes!
It just makes sense! Anyway, the cupcakes are full of small chunks of apples and topped with a caramel frosting.
The original recipe calls for melted caramels to drizzle on the frosting. I used caramel ice cream topping since I had it for the frosting. It ended up oozing down the sides of the cupcake rather than staying put on the frosting. It makes for a sticky mess. This may not happen if you do use actual caramels.
This is the perfect cupcake for the fall season.

In January, I was honored to make a cake and cupcake tower for my little brother’s wedding.
However, after making close to 200 cupcakes, I did not want to look at another one for a looong time! And I hadn’t until I saw that one of my favorite blogs, Your Cup of Cake, released its first cookbook. Of course I had to have it. What is so great about Lizzy is that she starts all of her recipes with box cake, but jazzes it up with additional ingredients and flavors. You would never know it’s a box cake and all of the recipes are so easy!!! Also, what’s great about the book is it is hardcover with a spiral binding. I know, I’m a dork!
My sister in law recently had a little get together and asked me to bring some cupcakes. From the book, I made chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting.
Look at how pretty! And of course they tasted delicious.
If you love desserts but need something quick and easy that looks complicated, definitely check out the blog Your Cup of Cake and pick up this awesome cookbook!!!
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, which means the fall baking season will be coming to an end. For the past few months, my baking has focused primarily on fall or in-season flavors such as apples and pumpkin. I thought I would do a round-up of these wonderful recipes…just in case you need any ideas for Thanksgiving ;).
Once Thanksgiving has come and gone, I will jump right into Christmas themed desserts. And just so you know, I am pretty obsessed with Christmas. However, these are the recipes I have on my list for fall 2013 (and can hopefully squeeze in this week)!
