Crazy Beautiful Cakes - Cake Gallery
The Apple Cupcakes was created on or around 2010-05-04.
These cupcakes were made for the teachers at my daughter's school for teacher appreciation day. I was inspired by the same cupcakes in the "What's New, Cupcake?" book by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson. The apple cupcakes start off as standard cupcakes.
The top rounded part of the cupcake is created by cutting a mini chocolate donut in half and placing that on the top of the cupcake. After that the top of the cupcake and the donut are iced with red or green buttercream frosting.
The apples are covered in large crystals of red or green sugar. The stems of the apples are created by molding Tootsie Roll candies into stem shapes. The leaves are cut out of Chewy Jolly Rancher candies. It's actually pretty tough to find enough green candies in a standard mix of Chewy Jolly Rancher candy.
