Ingredients


Baking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place cupcake liners in muffin pans.
  2. Prepare cake batter and enclosed caramel filling packet as directed on the package.
  3. Pour batter into cupcake liners, filling them half way. Top with a teaspoon of caramel filling. Top that with remaining cupcake batter, filling the liners no more than ⅔ full.
  4. Bake in center of oven at 350°F until cupcakes are firm in center, about 20 minutes. Let cool completely.
  5. Using a paring knife, cut a shallow circle from the top of the cupcake leaving a taller ¼ inch border of cake around the edges. This is your “pie crust”.
  6. Fill the circle with a scant tbsp. of apple pie filling.
  7. Pour packet of cinnamon roll flavor mix into can of frosting starter. Stir until evenly blended.
  8. Pipe 2 lines of frosting across cupcake. Turn cupcake ¼ turn and pipe two more lines of frosting to complete the lattice top. Pipe frosting around the edge of cupcake to complete your “pie crust”.

Tips

To Thicken A Glaze

To Thicken A Glaze

If glaze becomes too thin, add more confectioner's sugar. If glaze is too thick, add more orange juice.


Oven light

Oven light

My friend kept having trouble with an unlevel oven. The repairman showed her with a level that there was no problem with the oven. She asked me and I told her to turn off the oven light if she was keeping it on. Yes, she was, so she turned it off unless she was just checking. Her cakes after that did not have one side higher than the other. The light makes a difference in degrees on the side it is on.
