This is a cute idea. I found the cupcakes turned out more like a muffin and lacking a little flavor. It might be missing eggs. This is a recipe Id like to play with because it has a good start some things I would add are eggs and maybe instead of apple sauce use apple butter for more punch. Made for my three chefs.
