This dessert is the perfect homage to the fall apple harvest, covering a moist and flavorful vanilla cupcake with colored frostings to resemble a newly picked apple.
Using food coloring, tint buttercream as desired.
Using an offset spatula, frost the cupcakes with a generous amount of buttercream. Place a pretzel stick in the center of each cupcake to form a stem. Using kitchen scissors, cut candy strips into leaf shapes, and insert one into each cupcake, creating an apple. for each cupcake. Place next to the pretzel stem.
