How to make caramel apple cupcakes.

Basically, you will spruce up some apple pie filling, mix up a box cake to make these. You’ll add a small amount of the cake mix. Add a small amount of the pie filling on top. Then, top it off with more cake mix.

How to you put filling inside a cupcake?

  • Use a piping bag. (Typically used after the cupcake has been baked)
  • Cut out the middle section with a knife. Add your filling. Replace the middle section. Cover with frosting.
  • Use an apple corer. This removes the middle section, as mentioned above.
  • Add 1/3-1/2 of your batter to the tin. Next, add your filling. Add the other part of your batter to cover the filling. (As I did)
