Apple Cupcakes . . . The way to a teacher’s heart.
You all know the phrase ‘The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach . . .’ ?
That actually applies to all of us doesn’t it? I mean, is there anything better than something delicious and homemade, that’s been cooked or baked for us by someone else??? I don’t think there is. Or at least, very few things are.
Kim and I wanted to do something fun and tasty that kids could bring to school for their teachers or that moms or dads could make for their kids, to brighten up the long school day.
Kim found some cute ideas on Pinterest which we adapted to our liking and made some really fun, yummy cupcakes.
I used the ‘Classic White Cake Recipe’ from Rosie Dyakin’s ‘Butter Baked Goods’ cookbook as well as her ‘Butter’s Famous Butter Cream’ icing recipe.
I hate to say it (because I love Rosie’s recipes) but I think I still like Martha Stewart’s ‘Italian Cream Wedding Cake’ recipe better. (But I love Martha too, so it’s all good!)
I love my cake to be soft and moist and Martha’s has buttermilk in it so the flavour’s a little more complex as well. But, that’s all about personal taste.
So, without further ado, I give you my ‘Apple cupcakes’ . . . video tutorial.
Enjoy! And if you make them, I would love it if you would head over to my Facebook page and post a picture or two or your creations!
