We decided to make first day of school goodies since we work at a local university and classes had started. I went for the "apple for the teacher" theme where Melissa went for an all around school theme.
First I baked white cupcakes and frosted them with white frosting.
Then I dipped them into red sugar.
Next, the recipe wanted me to scrap out part of the frosting to make it look like someone took a bite out of the apple. This was a little more difficult than I anticipated and decided to just put a dab of white frosting on the side. I then used chocolate sprinkles as the apple seeds and put a pretzel sick in the middle for the stem.
Here's how they turned out.
