Can you believe that Halloween is already this Sunday? It came out of know where. But everywhere you look there are bags of candy, costumes and treats like caramel apples. Speaking of caramel apples, they were the inspiration for these cupcakes. They have all of the spices that we think of when we think of our favorite fall treats: cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Oh and not to mention delectably smooth, creamy sweet caramel frosting.
I am not sure if I mentioned it or not but my birthday was a couple of weeks ago. The big 27. I am also not sure if I mentioned this, but Ryan tends to spoil me. This birthday was no exception. You see, he bought me a Kitchen Aid. A bright, shiny, candy apple red one to be more exact. I’ve named her Bessie. Hey people can name their cars, why not their kitchen appliances? Right? right?
After she was named, I could not think of a better way to welcome Bessie into my kitchen then to make these cupcakes. These sweet, perfectly moist, simply decadent cupcakes perfect for your Halloween celebrations.
Oh and despite my absolute love of my new friend, fear not, if you don’t have a kitchen aid these can easily be made with a hand mixer.
