Co-worker: I have lost a pound (as in weight) in the last week because I haven’t had cake.
Me: Oh I’m sorry that I haven’t brought any in, what kind of cupcakes would you like?
Co-worker: I’m not fussy but what were them ones I had that I was finding chocolate for days after having them?
Me: The coffee cupcakes, I think I can make some more.
Another co-worker: I really liked them salted caramel cupcakes
Me: Okay, what about some salted caramel chocolate cupcakes?
Both co-workers: they sound good to me.
This is how these cupcakes came to being made, I like getting requests from people as it gives me a chance to try something different or even just to perfect a recipe. I find that no matter how many times I make a recipe I always try to perfect that recipe from the last time.
If you follow me on Instagram then you would have seen that I made the wrong cupcakes to start off with, I made vanilla ones by accident. I think it was cause I was running around trying to do something else at the time I was making my cakes but I thought actually I like the basic cakes so I can eat them. Then I debate whether to make the other cupcakes and I thought that I might as well so second batch is made correctly.
These cakes turned out really well and even though I had lots of cake, I had no issues getting rid of them. I was thinking about adding a salted caramel centre to these cakes but given the fact that I made to batches so I decided I wouldn’t this time but you can do it quite easily.
You can decorate these anyway you like, I choose chocolate sprinkles however you could get some Salted Caramel Galaxy and put some on the top of each cake. The nozzle I used on these cakes is a Open Star Piping Nozzle.
