As you might see on blogs across the world, the November challenge for the Daring Bakers is a caramel cake by Shuna Fish Lydon. Instead of making a whole cake, I made half a batch of the recipe as mini-cupcakes instead. Stupidly, I must have had my thoughts somewhere else while baking since I ended up with a batter that contained way too much sugar and butter. Oh well, the cupcakes stillturned out OK although I don't think they had the intended texture... The caramel frosting to go with the cupcakes was a bit too sweet for me (no big surprise there!) but still, the flavor was nice. One cupcake with a small amount of frosting on it was certainly enough to satisfy my sweet tooth.
