Cupcakes? Or pie? Why not both?

I was talking with a friend about my lack of orders this past fall, when she kindly suggested that maybe people are just more into pie around Thanksgiving/Christmas time instead of cupcakes.

Enter: Apple Pie Cupcakes.


These cupcakes were for an order just after Thanksgiving. The cake itself is a perfect balance to the sweet apple pie filling hiding under the cream cheese frosting. I topped it with a maple leaf made from pie crust – my mom’s recipe.

I’m thinking these could be a seasonal option for next year, offered along side my regular menu that I’m putting together.

Stay tuned!

    These cupcakes were amazing!! They were beautiful and delicious, with just the right combination of flavors. Can’t wait to try future flavors.

    What a great idea! Maybe do a mix of apple, pumpkin, pecan, etc., to provide all of the traditional pie flavors of fall. I would buy a dozen of those! :-)

      Thanks for the suggestion, Elizabeth. I have lots of flavors that I’d like to try!
