To make the cupcakes:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Line a cupcake pan with silicone cupcake liners or spray it thoroughly with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, cream butter and Splenda Sugar Blend together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until just combined. Beat in vanilla and applesauce. Sprinkle ⅓ of the flour mixture over the butter mixture and gently stir in until barely combined. Add half of the milk, mixing until just combined. Repeat these steps with the remaining flour mixture and milk, ending with the flour. Try not to over mix.
  5. Divide batter among the 12 cupcake liners. Bake for 14 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove cupcakes and allow to cool completely.

To make the topping:

  1. Whisk together Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, cinnamon and vanilla into a bowl.
  2. Fold in the whipped topping gently. Leave swirls of the cinnamon mixture if desired.
  3. Put a scoop of whipped topping on each cooled cupcake. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon. Serve immediately!
