I found a picture of apple cupcakes with beautiful smooth red icing. They look great. I'm hoping someone can lead me in a direction on what kind of icing was used to get this perfect apple red, shiney and smooth. They used pretzel sticks for the stem and looks like BC for a leaf. Can anyone help me figure this out, please?

Just looks like poured fondant to me.

Maybe fondant that has been steamed to make it shiny. The leaf looks like fondant to me.

Poured fondant, fondant leaf would be my thought.

Here is my guess..... Melted Buttercream and the cupcakes were dipped ~ that's what I would do?!
