Salted Caramel Cupcakes

I have to share these salted caramel cupcakes with you!

I have a box of Favourites chocolates on hand and used this as inspiration for these delicious cupcakes. I would love to say that I stuck my hand in the box and picked out a chocolate at random… but really I picked Caramello because it’s my all time favourite, I guess that is why they call it a box of Favourites!

For this I made a half batch of my  Rich Butter Cupcake recipe. I topped these cupcakes with my Traditional American Buttercream recipe, but for a twist I asalted_caramel_flavour__41502-1462428240-1280-1280__67786-1464072061-500-659dded a couple of drops of Roberts Confectionery Salted Caramel flavouring to the buttercream. DO NOT be tempted to add more than a few drops! My first attempt I added 1.5 teaspoons of the flavouring as my motto was “there is no such thing as too much caramel,” I was wrong.

They tasted great and looked fantastic to present to my family.
