Carmel Apple Cupcake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

A few weeks back,we were invited to a very fun dinner party at our friend Anna’s house and I was in charge of making dessert. I absolutely love coming up with dessert recipes or cooking anything sweet. After finding my inspiration, I came up with this fun and delicious cupcake. Paired with some hot cider or hot chocolate this sweet treat would be perfect for a christmas party.
