Apple Cinnamon Cupcakes

Ingredients -

1½ cups of cake flour
1 cup wheat flour
1 ¾ cups sugar
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 ½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
1 ¾ cups applesauce
1 stick of real butter
2 eggs
1 ½ cups apple, peeled, cored, and chopped into small pieces. (I used granny smith ones)
12 sugar daisies with green leaves attached.
1 cup white frosting***
pastry decorator bag and tips of your choice
To Make the Cupcakes:
Combine all of your dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
Add the butter, the eggs, and the apples to the mixture.
Using a mixer, beat on medium speed for about two minutes.
Turn to high speed and mix for about 2 minutes more.
Scrape and beat again for about 1 minute more.
Pour the batter into cupcake liners and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 35 minutes or until a toothpick that has been inserted into the center comes out clean.
Set on a cooling rack until the cupcakes are completely cool.
Fill your pastry bag with vanilla frosting and attach the tip of your choice. In a circular motion you will fill the cupcakes to the top with white icing.

***To frost these, I used the same frosting at the Oreo Cookie cupcakes, but I think they would be better with a lighter frosting such as a Brown Sugar Cream Cheese frosting.
Here's the recipe for that:
1 1/4 cups light brown sugar1/4 cup cornstarch1/2 cup powdered sugar2 8-ounce packages of cream cheese, at room temperature1/2 cup (4 ounces or 8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, at room temperature1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
