Vodka Appletini Cupcakes
If you love apple cobbler cupcake then you are just going to devour this awesome adult twist on the recipe - appletini cupcakes! By adding vodka it not only lightens the batter but adds a lovely boozy quality to it topped off with the vodka icing. And there's absolutely none of that artificially sweet fake apple taste either, this recipe is filled with spices & flavour and, of course, a good splashing of alcohol. This is a match made in heaven: sugar, spices and all things nice... with a dash of naughty to lighten the heaviness ;) It has the tang of real granny smith apples spiced with just the right amount of cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar, and my twist of vodka is just what the doctor ordered to ensure your friends know this is not your ordinary cupcake. Oh no - they've got themselves a bonafide, edible martini!
Now that's the taste covered. To make them look spectacular I baked them using Cakes Under The Influence’s adorable martini-shaped baking cups. Your friends will love being able to literally toast their martini cupcakes and the Cakes Under the Influence kits are extremely simple to use. Each kit comes with special silicone moulds designed to fit into your standard cupcake tins. In addition, the kits come prepared with metal baking cups that slip into these silicone moulds. You simply place your Cakes Under the Influence's custom-sized liners into those metal baking cups and pour in required batter - it's as easy as preparing any other cupcake liner. Finally, to serve up these delicious appletini cupcakes, you simply transfer the liners from the metal cups into the special drink glasses provided with your kit. It really is that simple!
So if you can bake a cupcake then I assure you you can make these cocktails in a cupcake! As a matter of fact, these kits are so much fun you might want to make a party of creating the appletinis with your friends. The only problem you may face is perhaps you'd better get more than one kit - because it's guaranteed after making and eating these delicious little cocktail cakes your mates are most definitely going to want to go for round two!
