Apple and worm cupcakes

Apple and worm cupcakes




Step 1. Make up the vanilla cupcakes as per the recipe.

Step 2. Bake as directed.

Step 3. Make your buttercream icing and add a few drops of colouring at a time until you have a rosy, apple red colour. Spread buttercream icing on cooled cupcakes.

Step 4. Push a piece of broken pretzel into the cupcake to  resemble a stalk. Push the plastic straw in to make a hole and poke one end of the Gummi Worm inside so it looks like it is emerging from the apple. Add a mint leaf either side of the pretzel to create leaves.
