Apple Decorated Cookies

So I normally don’t decorate cookies with royal icing, but when I got an order from my school to make these adorable apple shaped cookies, I couldn’t resist. You see, my school hosts a “Staff Appreciation” day in which a luncheon is organized just for them. I was asked if I could make cookies that looked like apples. I thought that it would be super cute to have these cookies as a part of food buffet that was organized for my teachers, and plus I don’t do enough of decorated cookies, so I said of course!

Vegan Caramel Apple Cupcakes

Last week, was my parents’ 13th anniversary, so I wanted to make something different for them. I looked at some vegan recipes and found this good one on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfRvzoRG0k&feature=youtu.be  I thought since it is fall right now, this recipe would be perfect.

This “vegan caramel apple cupcake” recipe was really good but included flour. Because my dad eats mostly gluten-free, I substituted half of the flour with almond flour. Even with the change of ingredient, I thought it tasted wonderful! The cupcake did not rise much because of less quantity of flour, but the caramelized apples and the spices (nutmeg and cinnamon) really made it into a tasty treat. The cinnamon frosting that I made went great with it. Not only did I love it, but my parents loved it as well. I will surely make this again.
