C is for coffee, caramel and cupcakes

Morning all :)

Last week I finally got around to making some more cupcakes. I wanted to try a couple of new recipes from my copy of Cake Days by the Hummingbird Bakery.

Caramel Cupcakes

I bought the caramel curls and cupcake cases from Morrisons' baking section

You can find this recipe on pages 12-13

Espresso Cupcakes

I bought the chocolate covered espresso beans from Whittards

You can find this recipe on pages 64-65

Just a heads up, if you own this book and haven't tried these yet be prepared for extra cakes and leftover frosting! I ended up with 21 Caramel Cupcakes and 19 Espresso Cupcakes when both recipes estimated a total of 12-16! I froze the leftover frosting for next time :)

What do you think? I've got my eye on the Sticky Toffee cupcakes next!
