So in case you didn't know it by now, I've got a thing for cupcakes. They're just so much fun to make! I don't mess around with store bought cake mix or frosting, either. I took a cake decorating class when I was 13 and learned how to make buttercream frosting, so I really just can't see myself ever slapping canned frosting onto a cupcake with a butter knife. Nope. It's just something to be creative with, really. I like to think about what cake would go with what frosting and what filling. Then making them as pretty as possible :)
Anyhoo, I made these cupcakes to bring down to my sister's house for her birthday, and since I still have half the batch of frosting, I'm making them again for Thanksgiving. It just seemed like the logical thing to do. The cupcake itself is an applesauce cake with apple pie filling and cinnamon cream cheese frosting. Everything was made from scratch and they got some pretty good reviews.
I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving! Anyone making any special treats? And is anyone else as obsessed with cupcakes as I am?
