Happy Birthday Johnny Appleseed! (Red Velvet Apple Cupcakes)

In honor of Johnny Appleseed's birthday (9/26) and our Apple Theme 
we whipped up these adorable & delicious
  Red Velvet Apple Cupcakes!




These are so cute & fairly easy to make.
They do require a lil prep but the end result is worth it!




To turn your red velvet cupcakes into apples you will need
chocolate twizzlers or tootsie rolls
sour apple laffy taffy

What To Do:
1. I cut the twizzlers into 4 pieces to make the stems
2. cut the taffy into small pieces and form a leaf
3. attach taffy leaf to stem by pressing them on - they will stick
Note: keep the taffy relatively thin so it's not too heavy. 
I learned this the hard way!


4. use red food coloring to turn cream cheese icing red
5. attach stems w/leaves to frosted cupcakes &
enjoy your Red Velvet Apple Cupcakes!

  10. Those are so cute. We were going to celebrate his birthday, but we had so much junk food right around then and it was daddy's bday the next day so I decided we didn't need another cake. We did read a couple of Johnny Appleseed books to go with our How to Make an apple Pie and See the World unit, and lots of apple stuff.

  12. Pug puppies and French Bulldogs make wonderful family pets. They are easygoing and get along well with children and the other pets of the household. Above all, they are hardy and an ideal pet, especially for first-time owners. Selecting a new pug puppy or French Bulldog is a daunting task. You want one that is healthy but also comes with a pleasant personality and is adaptable to your lifestyle.
