Above and beyond

Some might say it is too much to make a big batch of cupcakes just a couple of days after Halloween. Whoever those some are, they're missing out. On "tummy headaches," as Z calls them, to be specific.

Cider-Cinnamon Cupcakes
1 yellow or white cake mix
1/2 c. apple cider
1/3 c. applesauce
1 tbsp. butter
Mix and bake as directed on cake mix box to make 24 cupcakes.

1 bag confectioner's sugar
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. apple cider
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
Combine powdered sugar and butter in electric mixer. Add cider, vanilla and cinnamon. Stir to combine. Beat on high 1-2 minute until soft and fluffy.

Ice cupcakes using a decorating bag with the tip simply cut off - no fussing with couplers and tips for me! Add sprinkles if desired.

I know we're having birthday cake and all on Sunday, but if some of these sneak into your car and find their way over with you, I won't turn them away... ;)
