Caramel, Mocha, and Sea Salt

If happiness had a face, it would’ve been like a cupcake! My love for cupcakes is never-ending and this is the reason that I try to play with the flavors in the frosting to give it my signature taste every time. Well, as I love eating cupcakes when I am having a cup of coffee, I thought of mixing these both to make something delicious. That is when I first tried my Mocha sea salt cupcakes.

To add a little bit of sweetness, I tried adding caramel sauce in the frosting and it turned out to be the most delicious frosting I have ever tasted.

With cupcakes, I always have a rule: No matter how average the cupcake is itself; the frosting must be top-notch to make the people fall in love with you and your cooking. I don’t mean that I don’t bake good cupcakes, the cupcake recipe that I am about to tell you makes the most amazingly moist and yummy cupcakes without any extra effort.
