Old Fashioned Apple Spice Cupcakes | Your Grandma’s famous spice cake recipe turned into cupcakes and topped with a Cinnamon Apple Cream Cheese Butter Frosting.

Just the right amount of the spice with a frosting that is packed full of apple bits. Perfect for Game Day or a Fall Party. This recipe makes 48 cupcakes which makes them great for parties…..like tailgating.
The secret to getting the full flavor of apple in the frosting is grinding up freeze dried cinnamon apples.
Sometimes when fresh fruit is added to a frosting it can make the frosting too thin and the way most people correct that problem is by adding more sugar to the recipe. The recipe turns out really sweet with little to no fruit flavor. Click here for the frosting recipe—->>>>CINNAMON APPLE CREAM CHEESE BUTTER FROSTING RECIPE.
