Apple Cinnamon September

September brings crunchy leaves and nippy breezes, so we've brought back our classic Apple Cinnamon Cupcake! I know we're all partially in denial about the ending of summer, but school is back and the autumnal harvest has begun. These newly brisk mornings make me want to cuddle up with a book, tea, and sweet treat, so thank goodness I work at a bakery!

Every year I look forward to these apple cinnamon cupcakes. I am convinced there is a whole serving of fruit in each cupcake they're so chock full of apple! And then there's that drizzle of bourbon caramel sauce - MmmMmmMmmmmm! I beg the bakers to let me lick the spoon when they're done drizzling. It's the highlight of my day. To top off the cupcake there's an elegant swirl of cinnamon buttercream that's sweet and just a little bit spicy. With the bourbon and cinnamon this cupcake will warm you right up! In case this description is not enough, here's a pic:

For those of you bemoaning the fading days of summer, not to worry, we still have late harvest peach pies, and they are mouthwatering, if I do say so myself. When the juices bubble over and pool on the pan, it is one of my favourite things to scoop up and eat these puddles of golden deliciousness. Enveloped in buttery pastry, these peaches and their juice are even better!
