Birthday Cupcakes September – Chocolate Fudge Cupcakes with Salted Caramel Buttercream

“Oh, I adore to cook. It makes me feel so mindless in a worthwhile way.”
― Truman Capote, Summer Crossing

It’s birthday cupcake time at work again. This month brings mini fudge cupcakes with salted caramel buttercream frosting.

First let’s melt some dark chocolate.

This caramel is added to my basic buttercream. Then a dollop onto each cupcake. Add a little chocolate caramel ball and we are done.
