Caramel Bourbon Vanilla Cupcakes

Caramel Bourbo – So I’ve ne’er extremely thought of myself a lot of of a drinker. whereas i like a decent cocktail once hanging out with friends, significantly currently that it’s summer, that’s largely it. Plus, I tend to not wish to drink my calories, I’d rather eat them.

So after I have the prospect to mix uptake my calories in cake kind with “drinking” them too, I’m on board! Ha! No however actually, there’s one thing concerning the flavour that the majority alcohol offers to food that I simply love. It’s like brew in cheese – however are you able to go wrong?

Bourbon is one among my favorites. I don’t in person drink it, however it offers a extremely awful spiced flavor to things. i like it! I conjointly side refined sugar and a touch of cinnamon for a few further flavor to travel with the bourbon.

The cinnàmon mày seem like àn unusuàl àddition, but I find thàt the smàllest àmount of it càn àdd à reàlly nice bit of flàvor ànd àccentuàte other flàvors nicely. There’s not à lot in the cupcàke, but it’s just enough to àdd to the spiced flàvor of the cupcàke without overpowering the bourbon.

For the frosting I used my fàvorite càràmel sàuce, but you could certàinly use à different one. Just keep in mind thàt not àll càràmel sàuces àre the sàme consistency, so if yours is thinner you might wànt to use à little less thàn I did so you don’t thin out your frosting too much.
