Every year my friend Jess throws a cupcake wars party at her house. In our group of friends we take this competition seriously! It's "Bring the Rain" time every year with prizes for best tasting, most unique, best decorated, and best vegan cupcake. This year Tom and I's entry was a Triple salted caramel cupcake with a sugar syrup decoration. These puppies took about 4 hours to complete and I'm happy to say we did not burn the house down while making the caramel!
We used a recipe from a lovely blog called Sprinkle Bakes and modified our decorations. Hit the link for the full recipe! Let me just say the surprise caramel in the middle was my favorite part and the house smelled amazing! I also am claiming these to be a good luck charm because the day we made them was the same day we found our house! (That's right, big news we are buying a house and will be moving the week of November 16th! I can't begin to tell you how excited we are! )
All the cupcakes in the challenge were amazing. The tasting part sent us all into a sugar coma but it was worth it and we won best tasting! Here is to delicious cupcakes, celebrations with friends, and trying new things!
