Apple Cup Cakes

There isn't any apples in these cup cakes.  In fact nothing really about them is from scratch.  Which is not very typical for me.  But I needed some quick cute cup cakes to take to a church picnic.  Since it is September and it is apple season I decided to make these cup cakes look like little apples.  We have started home schooling again so our day gets busy and I did not have time to make anything fancy. 

So with a box mix, canned frosting, and some caramels I made these cute apple cup cakes.

Just make cup cakes.  Any flavor will do.  These are a cream filled yellow cup cake.  Bake according to the box directions and let cool.  You will need one can of frosting.  I used a cream cheese frosting.  It was just what I had in the cupboard.  Then I colored the frosting red.  Frost each cup cake.  I split those small square caramels like Kraft Caramels into three sections.  I rolled each section up and formed it into a stem.  Next I piped on a green leaf next to the stem.  I actually had a little green butter cream frosting left in the fridge.  So I used that with my leaf tip and piped on the leaves.  That is it!!  The results were great.
