Caramel Chocolate Cupcakes

I made some rich chocolate cupcakes topped with a creamy, intense, sugary caramel on a hot summer day. They had to travel to a party in the trunk of a car.

And this is what happened to the icing:

So it goes! They were still tasty, even though some of the tops looked like topographic maps.

One of the survivors of this batch—a cupcake unexposed to the elements—featured in a (private) video for a friend’s birthday. I sampled the cupcake while my fiancé danced.

  1. Next time try freezing the cupcakes before putting them in the car on a hot day. If they are froze solid they should be good to go by the time you arrive at the event.
