Apple Spice Caramel Cupcakes

Call Me Cupcake has modified a Martha Stewart recipe to create these Apple Spice Caramel Cupcakes.  Not only does the recipe sound delicious but I love the little green fondant apples used to decorate the cupcakes! The blog is written in Swedish so I used Google Translate to convert the text to English for the recipe which can be found below.
