So I am continuing with my 101 in 1001 goal to make a new cupake recipe every month for 12 months. I started in November so this is only mr third month. For January I chose Apple & Cinnamon Cupcakes from Cupcake Heaven by Susannah Blake. I took these to afternoon tea with my cousins and my parents this afternoon and everyone loved them. I highly recommend trying out this recipe!
