I don’t know why I keep putting off these posts until the very last possible minute, but I’m driving myself crazy! For that reason, on Day 12 of the Write 31 Days challenge, I’m bringing back some cupcakes I’ve posted before…. my Red Apple Cupcakes!
They’re perfect for Fall and oh-so-easy to make!
Are you ready for the easy-peasy instructions? Here you go…
Red Apple Cupcakes
First, bake up any flavor of cupcakes you want. I made vanilla cupcakes, but you could do red velvet if you want them to be festive… or white almond sour cream (the flavor I sell the most of!), or even chocolate. The sky is the limit!
While they’re baking, get out some fondant… either store-bought green (I love Satin Ice!) or homemade marshmallow fondant and color it green. I recommend Americolor Leaf Green gel coloring. Either way, roll out the fondant and cut some leaves. You can use leaf cutters from this set or this one… or even this cutter.
Once the cupcakes are all baked and cooled, it’s time to frost them!
You could use other tips – whatever you like best – but I loved the look of a French tip on these.
When you have them all frosted, the last thing you’ll do is add pretzel sticks to the center (for the stem) and a leaf to each one… and that’s it – you’re all done!
Didn’t I tell ya these Red Apple Cupcakes were easy? I love cake decorating designs (or cupcakes in this case) that come together with no fuss!
Do you have any questions about these cupcakes? Please feel free to leave a comment and I’ll help if I can!
I’d love for you to pin these:
