The real genius of these little cuties is that there are wee marzipan potatoes studding the chocolate cake soil! The baker made these for her father who is a potato farmer! I might die of preciousness!
I bet a teacher would appreciate a cupcake that looks like an apple even more than an actual apple. Yes, they are the pillars of society, but everyone needs an unhealthy treat now and again. Plus, maybe it's some sort of apple spice cake, that's not so unhealthy right? I'd even eat that!
Why oh why does marzipan have to taste like marzipan? It's so lovely to look at and you can make such adorable little things with it. I just wish it tasted like, well, anything other than it does. Every Christmas my great aunt Mary used to bring over a plate of amazing handmade marzipan fruits and ever year I would try one thinking maybe, just maybe, this time it wouldn't taste like THAT. But it did. And it does.
