Here in St. Louis we have had a mix of temperatures lately. From super hot days to much cooler evenings and we’ve even had a few gorgeous 70 degree days. 

I’m certainly ready for the beautiful, crisp weather and the changing of leaves.

For Cupcakes:

For Frosting

  • ¾ cups unsalted butter softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons Green Apple Torani syrup


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a standard muffin tin with paper liners and set aside. 
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, over medium-low heat, bring milk to a simmer. Do not allow to come to a boil. When milk is at a simmer, add tea bags, cover and remove from the heat. Set aside and allow to steep for 20 minutes. Remove the tea bags and throw them away. Set milk aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar on medium high speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add the egg and beat until well blended. Add vanilla bean paste and beat an additional 1 minute.
  • Stir in the flour and mix just until combined. Add 2/3 cup of tea milk, combining just until milk in incorporated.
  • Spoon the batter into cupcake liners about 2/3 full. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cupcakes comes out clean. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.


  • In a large bowl, beat together butter, powdered sugar, cinnamon and Torani Green Apple syrup until the frosting is the desired consistency. If the syrup seems too thick, add a little more syrup. If it seems too runny or thin, add a little more powdered sugar.
  • Top cupcakes with frosting, an apple slice and complete with a drizzle of Torani Caramel Sauce.
