Salted Caramel is one of my favourite flavours so I definitely had to make some Salted Caramel Cupcakes. Moist little cakes, topped with a big swirl of salted caramel buttercream, drizzled with even more salted caramel plus they have a surprise center!

These are amazing! I love the whole idea of cupcakes.  A perfect, decorated little cake just for you.

These are made with brown sugar which gives them a natural caramelised flavour. There is salted caramel piped into the center of the cake for that extra delicious surprise when you bite into them. A big swirl of salted caramel buttercream and an extra drizzle of the caramel on top, finishes these amazing little cakes off.

Just look at that oozing caramel! It makes me wish that there were some left! If like me you’re a cupcake fan, you need to take a look at my Very Vanilla Cupcakes, my Baileys Chocolate Cupcakes and my Pumpkin Cupcakes!

  4. Divide the mixture evenly between the cake cases and bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center of a cake come out clean. Leave the cakes to cool.
  5. To make the buttercream add the butter to the bowl of your mixer and beat until pale and fluffy. Turn the mixer down low and gradually add the icing sugar. when it's all combined add the salted caramel and beat for a couple of minutes until light and fluffy.
  6. Get your cooled cupcakes and a small sharp knife and cut a little piece out the top of each cake to make a space for the salted caramel. Spoon the caramel for the filling into the welled out cupcakes keeping back just enough to drizzle on the tops of the cakes.
  7. Add your buttercream to a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle and pipe some lovely big swirls onto the top of all the cakes. Finish them off by drizzling the tops with the caramel you kept back! All done and ready to eat!

    It’s my birthday next week and we always take cakes in to work to celebrate. I’m going to make these. The girls will be sooo pleased. Will let you know how they go down

  2. Gwenda Ellis says:

    If I make these a day before required, will the salted caramel filling in the centre, still stay soft, or is it likely to harden within the cupcake?

      The ingredients are in grams which is the measurement we use in the UK. If you are used to another way of weighing you can find conversion tables online. Are you from the US? Do your scales have grams on them?
