Sometimes, I make things because I have the ingredients. Other times, I need to make them for an event. Today, was a combination of both, but mostly I made these just because I wanted to photograph them. These cupcakes were perfectly moist, fluffy and light. Soaked in a little bit of coffee liqueur syrup and topped with the most amazingly delicate marscapone frosting, these cupcakes honestly just made me stop and appreciate life. It was really that monumental. Italians knew their stuff.
I’m on a salted caramel kick right now. It’s a pretty trendy flavour as it is but it is for a good reason. It’s delicious. I’ve also been looking for a great vanilla cupcake recipe for the longest time, and I think I found it! It’s perfectly light, rises beautifully, and has that perfect little crispy top that is great with swiss meringue buttercream. Yum.
