My cupcake creation is an ode to the Ithaca Applefest. Oh, how I missed that annual event so very much this year but these are indeed unprecedented times. I wanted to incorporate all the flavors of the Applefest; fresh local apples, warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg and pure maple syrup. How I wish you could smell and taste these luscious cupcakes! They would surely take you back to simpler times.
