I came up with the combination of cinnamon and cayenne. I was making cinnamon toast one day and accidentally sprinkled cayenne pepper on my toast instead of cinnamon! I decided to just add cinnamon to the cayenne and I loved it. I am constantly making cupcakes and thought I would try my new found combination in cupcakes. I loved the end result and hope you do, too. The apple spice cupcake are topped with a rich and silky maple frosting.—Elisha Ayers, Unicoi, Tennessee
