I made these cupcakes last week for Easter, and they are probably the best cupcakes I've ever made. Everything was made from scratch-- the cake, the caramel (omg! i know how to make caramel now!) even the icing was completely made from scratch.
It was a little daunting at first, as I'm not the most adept in the kitchen, but I managed to not screw up by accidentally broiling them. Remind me to tell you about the time I brilliantly broiled a batch of chocolate chip cookies... I don't think I will ever hear the end of that...
(doesn't that cupcake look amazing?)
