Two for the price of one!

Okay, I have the Apple Crisps, and some Yellow Cupcakes I made just for fun. I know I promised them a week ago... but there they are finally!!

  • The stuff that makes it all... I used the green apples for that little bit of tart.. mmm

  • The love of my life Kitchen Aid mixer... Doing all the work for me... I remember what it was like before I had her... Horrible memories and arm cramps!!

  • The cupcakes after cooking the crunchy topping. I used a packet of Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal in the recipe. I think it made it a little sweeter, and the dried apples on top added to the flavor of the cupcake.

  • Here they are! The finished product!! I just made a simple frosting of Powdered Sugar and Milk to make the drizzle. Yummy, moist, and PERFECT.

And here are the simple yellow cake cupcakes... I made strawberry buttercream to go with it... Tried a little strawberry syrup on a couple and green and pink sprinkles on others.
