These caramel filled cupcakes were quick to bake and decorate, so will have to be this weeks Great Bloggers Bake Off entry. I really wanted to make a lemon meringue pie but just haven't had the time this week. As we are now in October (how did that happen?) I went for some Autumnal colours for the flowers and leaves.
The sugarcraft icing can be made in advance and for more information on the products I use, you can visit my English Rose Cupcakes post. Silicon moulds are so easy to use and can be picked up at a good price on ebay or a cake shop.
For these cupcakes I just used a standard cupcake recipe, but as I had some carnation caramel left over from my caramel apple cake, I decided to cut out the middle of the cupcakes, fill them with caramel and then put the cake top back on. Then when covered with buttercream, you can't see it is there and get a nice surprise when you cut into the cake.
