Creativity Roadblock.

I find myself at a loss for blogging lately, so here is something I did a few weeks ago for Young Women in Excellence. And yes, they were as tasty as they look:

Found these little beauties on Conversations with a Cupcake.

And found these super-tasty, super easy, cupcakes here.

The only differences I made were on the Apple Spiced Cupcakes. Instead of cinnamon sticks for the stems, I used pretzels. Also, I spread green Wilton Candy Melts on mint leaves, put in the fridge for a few minutes and then peeled the candy off the mint to make edible leaves for the "apples".

*What I would have changed, had I known... I would have just used a spice cake mix for the cupcake part. (It didn't taste much different, to me.) The recipe on the blog makes really heavy cupcakes. I am a Betty Crocker kind of baker. Plus, it's much, much easier.*

P.S. Congratulations to me. Did you notice that I successfully made links?! Go, me!


  1. I LOVE Conversations with a Cupcake! I bought cinnamon extract to make those same cupcakes but I can't find candy apple oil. Did you find it somewhere or did you just make it without?

  2. I couldn't find it either. Actually, I didn't add any of the *optional* ingredients. Tasted good anyway...

  3. Oh mY!! Brooks those are beautiful!! I like your version of the apple ones much better!! Super cute!!

  4. WOW! Those look Delicious! Good job!

  5. Amazing! I would have to agree that I like your version of the apple cupcakes MUCH better! Way to go Brooks! Love them!
