Today is Eat an Apple Day, and I choose to celebrate with cupcakes.
Caramel Apple cupcakes, to be exact.
There are plenty of recipes out there for caramel apple cupcakes, and I really enjoyed this one, http://www.bakedperfection.com/2011/10/apple-cupcakes-with-caramel-buttercream.html.
For the buttercream, I followed Martha Stewart’s Swiss Meringue Buttercream recipe, then added cooled caramel at the end, which is basically what this blogger does too.
I finished them off with a drizzle of caramel. Some coarse sea salt on top would be a nice addition, too.
