Apple pie cupcake, the small cake in between.

The recipe for the delicious apple pie cupcake is, as it did for the Mocha tartlets and chocolate waffles, the first of 12 cupcake recipes this year. Actually, it should also go online in January, but there were a few problems with my blog.

But now comes down again as required, and thus there is the first cupcake recipe today. The baked cupcakes are filled with a delicious, homemade apple compote and are then decorated with a frosting. Those who wish can also pipe the Frosting very classic. I have chosen this option, so it looks a little apple pie.

As base I used a HORI Laminate, which kindly provides from
