Apple cider in the icing--genius!  Wow, these look awesome!  I love the details you put in it!  They make it look extra special.  :)  The vibrant red with the green leaves looks so pretty.  :)

Another great treat!!! :D Just a question: did you make all these around the days you posted their picture, or were they made earlier??

Normally I wouldn't acknowledge this type of question and here is why! It bears no difference when they were baked, to be honest, I'd like my viewers focus more on my photography skill than my culinary endeavor. I make food for one reason and one reason only - food photography! I make food because I need the subject matter to take photos of and I quite like the idea that I am able to control the colors, designs, sizes and varieties.

Now let me ask you, does it matter when they were made? 
Reply
:iconkz-jello:
KZ-jello Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2014
Oh no, it doesn't matter when they were made, I was just wondering since you are a frequent updater and the theme of what food you made has correspondence to the seasons/holidays. :) Sorry if I troubled or offended you Sheepish

I'm surprised to see someone not use pretzels for Apple stems ;O interesting to see real ones
Reply
:icontheresahelmer:
theresahelmer Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2014  Professional Photographer
Ps. The devil IS in the details...personally I reject the idea using pretzel sticks as stems, the texture/the bite of the pretzel sticks are hard, crunchy and even at times salty, quite the opposite from the soft and sweet textures of the cupcakes. 

But I also understand not everyone has apple tree in their garden...

I never realized such a small change could have that impact. I've actually never taken the time to pay attention to the scent of the apple stem; it's either never there or I never thought to smell it. Though it's still so interesting, regardless of the explanation you give, to see you use the stems. It's just atypical compared to what I usually see, so kudos to you for doing something different.

I know the smell well because the stems happens to be the fav food of a chinchilla! 

Kitty (our chinchilla's name) loves fresh sweet apple stems!

Another tip: Apple smoked BBQ, the wood chips cut from the trunk of apple trees. Same idea!

have you ever smell the stems that's been cut from an apple tree? if not, why not give it a try! the stems carries this sweet scent and the scent permeate into the cupcake itself, hence using the stems.

someone suggested i "should" use this and that...and never bother to ask why i used the stem...
