I made a cake that looked a little like these last fall. I wanted to turn the cake into little cupcakes that looked like Apple Baskets. I think I was successful!
They are Applesauce Spice flavor with buttercream icing and royal icing apples. I cooked them in parchment paper cups to give it more of a "basket" feel. All you have to do is cut parchment paper into squares and press them down into your cupcake pan. Easy and beautiful! Plus, I ALWAYS have parchment paper on hand, but not always cupcake liners!!!
I decided to box them up and donate these to the Officers' Spouses' Club for the November luncheon as an "opportunity" which is just the Army's way of saying "raffle prize" I hope someone finds them delicious!!!!
