Rosh Hashanah – ראש השנה

On Rosh Hashanah we eat an apple dipped in honey.

1 – We made cupcakes out of our basic white cake recipe (an cupcake will work). We specifically used red cupcake holders to give it more of an apple look.
White Cake
1/2 c oil
1 1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
2 1/4 c flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 c orange juice
1/2 c water
1 tsp vanilla extract
Beat sugar and oil, then add eggs. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

2 – Ice cupcakes (we used powdered sugar and water) and cover with red sugar crystals.
3 – Place a small pretzel as the stem and green taffy as the leaf.
