Toffee Apple Cupcakes

I went to the Cake and Bake show in London back in October and brought myself two bags of icing sugar from Sugar and Crumbs

I brought a bag of Toffee Apple Icing Sugar and a bag of Mulled Wine Icing Sugar. I thought these would be great flavours for this time of the year.

I wanted to start my festive baking off by using these bags of icing sugar. I know Toffee Apples are normally for about October time when the fair comes to town but I think it’s a good festive treat.

I used a mixture of plain icing sugar and the toffee apple icing sugar as I didn’t want the flavour to be over powering and I didn’t want to use all the toffee apple icing sugar.

I added icing to the cupcake mixture as well to make it all tastes just like eating a toffee apple.

I went for a nice red icing to represent the toffee on the outside of a deep red apple which I think always look good.

Two little candy canes to end the buttercream rose because well it’s Christmas and why not.

I was really pleased with how these turned out because I was slightly nervous you wouldn’t be able to taste the toffee apple in the cupcakes but you get a good hint of it when you bite into it.
