  1. Frost cupcakes with a thick smooth layer of frosting.
  2. Cut each tootsie roll in half lengthwise. Stick one into each cupcake at the top edge right above the cupcake paper so it looks like an apple stem.
  3. Cut the fruit slices in half lengthwise and place one on top each cupcake near the stems so it looks like an apple leave.
  4. Cut about a fourth off one end of each gummy worm. Push the cut end down into the top of each cupcake a little way into the cake. Make sure the worm is hanging out of the frosting, so it looks like a worm coming out of an apple.
  5. Optional Step: When preparing my cupcakes, after my batter was in the cupcake liners in the pan, I stuck a small piece of rolled up foil between the liner and the pan. This will make the cupcakes have an indent on one side, so it looks like an apple shape.
