"LET'S EAT FICTION!"
APPLE WHITE'S CUPCAKES
20 red paper cupcake liners
20 cupcakes, baked and cooled
20 mini glazed donuts
1 (16 oz) tub of store-bought vanilla frosting
red food coloring (preferably the gel kind)
20 mini pretzel sticks
20 fresh mint leaves
red sugar crystals/sprinkles
Bake cupcakes in red paper liners. Cool completely.
Hold one mini glazed donut on its side and slice off the bottom third (watch the above video to see how this is done). Place the top portion, flat-side down on top of each cupcake. Set aside.
Mix the red food coloring into the tub of frosting until you reach the desired shade. Spoon the frosting into a gallon-size baggie and cut 1/2" off one of the bottom corners. Now you have a homemade cake decorating bag.
Remove the donut for a moment and squeeze a dollop on top of the center of the cupcake. Replace the donut, the frosting will help it stick. Now squeeze a continuous swirl of frosting on top until the cupcake and donut have been covered. Take a small knife or spatula and smooth out the frosting.
Immediately cover the entire top of the cupcake with red sugar crystals until the frosting is completely covered.
Stick a pretzel into the center of the cupcake and push all the way down to make the stem. Finally, press one mint leaf on top, next to the stem. That's it! You're done!!
