Chocolate Apple Spice Cupcakes

It’s fall, and a lot of people are having birthdays. It’s also apple season, and though I’m sure lots of people were hoping for a chocolate birthday cake, and might be disappointed with an apple cake, well, now they can have both! Call me your fairy godfather. I may call upon you for a favor someday. The flavors of chocolate, apple, cinnamon, clove, ginger, and allspice are all at the party. Topped with a cream cheese cinnamon frosting, it’s the first cupcake of the fall. I hope you like it.
