Last week my grandma called me to pick up some fruits and vefgies from their abundant garden. I had my pick at beautiful purple eggplants, the last of the tomoatoes, and thefirst of teh persimmons. Ahh, I love it! While back there my grandparents picked a big bg of apples for me. Adorable, teeny gala apples. But a whole bag? What to do with all those apples!? Then came the idea...caramel apple cupcakes.

Oh, I also had extra cream from the Boston Creams so I made pie for my Grandma's birthday...a delicious Banana Cream Macadamia Pie! The only problem I had was the cream was too runny to be in a pie. But I know what to do for next time; this pie will definitely be created again! :)

The cupcake (below) on the right is also a smore's cupcake but done a little different than I usually make.
Cousin Virg asked why my smore's cupcake isnt' chocolate based and you know, i dont know why it isnt. But its filled with ganache and that is delicious if you ask me. So this is for you Virg. It's chocolate cake with ghram bottom, injected with marshmallow and ganache. And topped with a torched marshmallow frosting. It was delish.
My niece slept over the night I was making these. She is always such a big help when I'm baking! Well, we had a garage sale planned the next day, so we baked a few extra bitty bites for her to sell.
I told her she can sell em for 50 cents, or a dollar is she wanted to try. And guess what!? She sold a whole bunch of them for $1 each! lol. Then she started selling em for 50 cents. She made about $10! lol.
Here is a pic of her with the smore's bitty bites:
Isn't she just the cutest thing?! :) She is a cupcake monster.
And readers, I'm in need of some inspiration for my next cupcakes. I'm drawing a blank on ideas. Help!
Thanks for reading! :)
