Fall is almost here!!  Fall is my favorite season, I love it!  I especially love the cooler whether.  It's so nice to be able to cook and bake and be able to turn on the oven without making my house feel like a sauna.  I also love all the fall flavors, especially apples!  I love apple picking and being able to go to the grocery store and getting to pick out apples that are from a fresh crop, woohoo!!  They are so great and affordable!  Since apples are in season, it's a perfect time to make this applesauce apple cinnamon bundt cakes.  They are AMAZING!!  These mini bundt cakes would be perfect for a fall party or for an afternoon snack.  Just make up the mini bundt cakes and then have a few options for toppings.  You will be the coolest!

I headed to Walmart to pick up the supplies.  M&M's® has their fall flavors out and they have a new flavor this year, M&M's® Pecan Pie and it only available at Walmart.  They are so yummy!

Here is what I picked up, I'm so excited about the yummy fall flavors.  Like the Pillsbury™ Creamy Surpreme® Caramel Apple and the Snapple® Apple.  Snapple® also has a new flavor, Snapple® Fall Spice so be on the look out for that one, I bet it's delicious.

4) Spray a mini bundt cake pan with cooking spray and then coat it with flour.  Add the batter to the pan (each one is about 1/4 cup of batter).  Make the batter as even as possible in the pan.

Now time for the yummy toppings.  I bought the Pillsbury™ Creamy Supreme® frosting in two flavors- Cream Cheese and Caramel Apple.

6) Put the frosting into the microwave for 35-45 seconds. Heat up each frosting individually.  I put them into a fun jar so make it easier to pour.

And that's it for the baking!  Now it's time to set up for the mini bundt cake bar.
I made some fun little apple plates using red plates and some green felt.  I just glued the stem and leaves onto the plate, super easy but cute huh?!

And here is everything ready to eat.  I selected three different M&M's® to go with the cakes- M&M's® Pecan Pie, M&M's® Candy Corn and M&M's® Milk Chocolate Harvest. Then there are two different frostings for people to choose from.  Oh and some Snapple® Apple to drink.
