$7 for Six Cupcakes ($14 Value)
The cupcakes include Death by Oreos, chocolate batter with an oreo baked into the bottom and cream-cheese frosting topped by a mini oreo. The Not Your Granny’s Apple Pie confection conceals spice cake beneath apple-pie filling, frosting, swirls of caramel, and candied pecan.

Waves of warmth ripple out from the oven, softening pale whorls of cream-cheese frosting and curlicues of caramel syrup. Sheila, the baker, bustles among miniature confections, sprinkling fistfuls of oreo crumbs, pressing candied pecans into frosting, and making sure that the cupcakes are not just actual cakes off in the distance. Colorful paper wrappers cradle the sweets, which are forged with pumpkin batter, chocolate cake, butter-pecan dough, and spice cake with apple-pie filling.
