Caramel Apple Cupcakes

Thanks to Wegmans, I spied with my little eyes something that looked delicious when I went to get groceries and even though I didn’t know of a recipe to make at the time, I picked it up.

Caramel Apple frosting

Since I’ve been baking a lot since we moved, I tend to keep either a white , butter, or yellow cake mix on stock in my cabinets. The recipe I found to make these yummy apple cupcakes called for white cake mix, but I had butter cake mix so that was what I used. They still turned out heavenly. I would have made the icing from scratch, but since this icing is what inspired the whole baking bit, I decided to go ahead and use it. I will tell you – it’s very sweet. It tastes delicious, but next time, I will make my own caramel buttercream frosting. Homemade is so much better.
