Granny Smith Apple Cupcakes
I made Granny Smith Apple Cupcakes this weekend! I subscribe to Martha Stewart's podcasts on iTunes and I was inspired by one of her recent back-to-school ideas and recipes.
Originally I wanted to make red apple cupcakes but ran out of red food coloring. I almost dashed out to the shops to get a fresh bottle but Sunday laziness got the better of me. I ended up decorating my cupcakes in apple-y green. After all, I really think Granny Smith is prettier than Red Delicious.
This recipe calls for basic vanilla cupcake recipe and buttercream frosting. You can find my vanilla cupcake base recipe on my food blog. For the buttercream recipe, I always use Martha's Easy Buttercream recipe. To mimic a real Granny Smith, I used chocolate covered pretzel sticks and store bought edible sugar leaves.
What have you been cooking/baking/creating this weekend?
