Is there a prayer to be said when we dip the apple in the honey?

Before eating the apple dipped in honey on the first night of Rosh Hashanah we recite the following:

Blessing for fruit:

Baruch atta Ado-noy Eh-lo-hay-nu Me-lech ha-oh-lam, Boray pe-ree ha-etz. [Blessed are you, Lord our G-d, King of the universe, who creates the fruit of the tree.]

Prayer for sweet new year:

Yehi Ratzon Mil-fa-necha She'Te-cha-deish Alei-nu Shanah Tovah U'Me-tukah [May it be Your will to renew for us a good and sweet year].

Rosh Hashanah
The Jewish New Year. An early autumn two day holiday marking the creation of Adam and Eve. On this day we hear the blasts of the ram's horn and accept G-d's sovereignty upon ourselves and the world. On Rosh Hashanah we pray that G-d should grant us all a sweet New Year.
It is forbidden to erase or deface the name of G-d. It is therefore customary to insert a dash in middle of G-d's name, allowing us to erase or discard the paper it is written on if necessary.
