Cream the butter and vanilla together in a large bowl.  On low speed slowly add the icing sugar until it’s all combined then add your apple flavoring and a few drops of green food coloring.  Place your desired piping tip in your bag and fill with your apple flavored icing.  Pipe the icing onto your cupcakes.  Once finished use the rest of your caramel to drizzle around the top.  If you run out just make a half batch of the caramel recipe. 

For an extra added touch you can use melted chocolate melties to create an apple stem, and melted white chocolate melties colored with green food coloring to create some cute leaves!
