A while back my Mom bought me a couple of really cool cupcake decorating books. Both were full of awesome ideas that were pretty simple to create. I can't take credit for designing these cupcakes, but I did bake and decorate them based on the directions in the book.
I was in the mood to decorate and we had a conference day at school. The idea of sitting in meetings all day without treats was terrifying (sorry fellow art teachers, but you know meetings are more fun with snacks). So I went through the books and thought apple cupcakes would be fun for teachers, and who doesn't love a good cherry or blueberry pie. These cupcakes were fun to create and eat.
