Fall is in the air around our neck of the woods… the days are getting shorter, the nights are getting cooler, and the leaves are beginning to turn. I can’t help but think of all the yummy pumpkin, apple, and peachy things there are to make!!! These Apple Cider Cupcakes cupcakes are a super easy spin off a cake mix! I made them last Sunday for my nieces and nephews, they were so sad to be limited to only 2 each! (Except my littlest niece, Tessa, she just wanted refills on the frosting…twice!!) I quickly told them the Apple Cider Cupcake recipe would be posted for their mommy to make at home… hint, hint Louise 😉
