Apple Cupcakes are a Perfect addition to any Fall Party

Move over Apple Pie and make room for the Apple Cupcakes on the table. These SWEET Apple Cupcakes are not only simple to make, but they are also perfect for any Fall Party Theme, or really any time of the year.

I also bet teachers would love to receive a dozen Sugary Apple Cupcakes vs. a Plain ol’ Apple any Day. So these are also great to send to school with the kids.

These Apple Cupcakes were created by one of my readers, Lisa who made these treats inspired by one of the many great Cupcake Ideas from the What’s New Cupcake Book.  This book is full of great fun Cupcake Ideas including this Apple Cupcake Lisa made. The What’s New Cupcake Book by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson is the follow up to their first Top Selling Book  Hello Cupcake. IF you love making Cupcakes and do not own these books – I suggest you pick them up – they are AWESOME.

Here is What you will need to create these Red Apple Cupcakes:

  • Cupcakes of Course – Any Flavor would work Red Velvet or Apple Flavored would be fun
  • White or Vanilla Frosting
  • Red Food Coloring
  • Red Sugar Sprinkles
  • Tootsie Rolls – Stems
  • Green Fruit Roll-Ups – Cut into Leaves

All you need to do is Bake and Cool your Cupcakes. Then frost them with some of your Frosting dyed Red. Then dip the entire top of your Cupcake into the Red Sugar Sprinkles and coat them good.

Then Stick in your Tootsie Roll into the middle to be your Apple Stem and add a Leaf you cut from the Green Fruit Roll Ups. If you cannot find Green Fruit Roll Ups then I would use a Green Gumdrop sliced.

****NOTE: If you want to mix it up a bit then create some Green Cupcakes doing everything the same, but change the coloring to Green vs. Red.****

That is it – They are so Super Simple to make and Look Absolutely Adorable !!!

I would like to give a Shout Out Thank you to Lisa for allowing me to share the photo of her Apple Cupcakes. I think she did a great job creating them and I am sure all the little ones who she shared them with enjoyed them as well.

    I love this post! The apple cupcakes look SO yummy. I agree, they’re perfect for a party! Every Autumn my family has a bunch of people over and we all go apple picking at a nearby orchard. Then we all come back to the house for a turkey dinner with all the trimmings and apple pie. The cupcakes would be a great addition to the party! Thanks for sharing!
