Apple Cider Cupcakes

These cupcakes are delicious. The spiced apple cake is perfect for the fall and winter season. I decorated these cupcakes with christmas decorations, but of course they would be delicious any time. The best part about these cupcakes is that they come with a little secret. This recipe is actually made with boxed cake mix which makes it super easy to make. Some other ingredients are added to enhance the cake mix so they are KINDA homemade. Don't worry, your secret is safe with me.
