Well hello there, welcome to Cupcake Tuesday! I’m so excited to have you here! Looking for a cupcake recipe? Our Cupcake Heaven page has over 200 cupcake recipes and decorating ideas!
Fall is my favorite season to bake! With all the delicious flavors to enjoy – pumpkin, cinnamon, apples, caramel and more – how can you wrong? We continue Apple Week today with these Caramel Apple Cupcakes.
Starting with a doctored cake mix, then stuffed with apples, and topped with a Caramel Frosting, a sprinkle of walnuts and drizzled with caramel these cupcakes are not only the perfect Fall treat, they are also part of the OXO Bake a Difference and Cookies for Kids Cancer campaign.
I’m super excited to be working with OXO on this campaign. Not only do they have amazing baking tools, they are also a really great company. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and they are showing their annual support for Cookies for Kids Cancer program that was founded by two OXO employees.
To help, I created these Caramel Apple Cupcakes and OXO will donate $100 to the Cookies for Kids Cancer program.
One of the baking tools I received was the Cupcake Corer, along with Measuring Cups, Spoons and a Cupcake Icing Knife, which all part of specially marked products for the Bake a Difference program. OXO will donate .25 cents for each product purchased.
We learned how to core and fill cupcakes during Cupcake Boot Camp, and now we can add this great OXO Cupcake Corer to the list. Just push into the center of the cupcake, a quick twist and pull out the core.
Then fill with chopped Fried Apples.
A big dollop of Caramel Frosting, then walnuts and drizzle of caramel finishes off the cupcakes.
