“Apple of Your Eye” Apple Cider Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Frosting

One of the greatest gifts that has come from being a food blogger is the wonderful number of absolutely lovely people I now call friend. Kristan from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen is one of those friends.

My favorite thing about Kristan is her hilarious sense of humor. Every single post Kristan writes has me laughing out loud. The videos on YouTube of her pranking her son, Jon David, literally had me crying real tears. When I grow up, I want to be a mom just like her.

Today we celebrate our Cookbook Queen, and her beautiful baby girl due to arrive in about four weeks. I can’t wait to meet little Miss Ava Lucille, or as her mama is already calling her, Lucy. If there ever was a woman who loved sparkle and spice, and needed a little girl to share that with, it’s Kristan.

Kristan, I made these Apple Cider cupcakes for the newest Apple of your Eye. I did everything I could to channel your creative genius, using as much candy as I could to create a cute little topper for each cupcake. I hope I did you proud.

I am so happy for you, my friend. Congratulations to you and Jess, and Jon David too!
