These Caramel Apple Cupcakes are simple, yummy, and beautiful – my favorite kind of treat!

This is a SIMPLE recipe for a moist, treat that will have people asking for more. Simply start with your own cupcakes – I used a box mix and made it according to the box instructions.

Simply uncap it, turn upside down and “squish” into your cupcakes. One tube should nicely fill 6 cupcakes.

Now, my clearance score on frosting — it was $0.75 and I had coupons for $1.00/2 – making it just $0.25 each.

I popped it into my decorating bag with a star tip — and here is how you make it fancier: start at the center of the cupcake and swirl out in a circle. If you start on the outside and swirl in, it’s not as “fancy” a finish.

Simply top with a few seasonal sprinkles and you are golden!

They will think they are just “pretty” until they bite in and see how moist and scrumptious they are!
