Apple Cupcakes Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven and line muffin tin with paper liners.
  2. Prepare batter according to the directions on the box.
  3. Fill liners 2/3 full and bake according to box directions for cupcakes. I am horrible when it comes to putting the right amount into the liners. I always end up having less than the amount yielded on the box.
  4. Let cool.
  5. Whip the butter and the vanilla until fluffy.
  6. Gradually add powdered sugar to the mix.
  7. Add milk until you reach desired consistency and then add the food coloring to achieve a nice pink/red color.
  8. Frost each cupcake.
  9. Sprinkle each cupcake with red sparkling sugar and then insert the tootsie roll in the middle as the stem.
  10. If using Rollups, cut 2 leaves for each cupcake and put in place or if you are using M&M’s place to as the leaves.
  11. Enjoy!

Not so bad right? These would make a cute teacher dessert too.
