Cute Cupcakes!

Yesterday Laura and I had fun in the kitchen! We made chocolate cupcakes, filled them with a caramel frosting. We topped 1/2 with a cream cheese icing and the other with dark chocolate. Then we had fun using the yellow melting chocolates to shape them into flowers.
The only new recipe we tried that I haven't already posted the recipe is the caramel filling. I'll give you the original, but for our purposes we wanted it thicker so we doubled the powdered sugar. So here it is...

Quick Caramel Frosting
1/4 C butter
1/2 C brown sugar
pinch of salt
2 T milk
1 1/2 C powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Melt the butter and brown sugar and salt in a saucepan. Add milk and stir until boiling. Remove from heat and beat in powdered sugar and vanilla.
