  1. I’m really enjoying your cooking adventures and this looks like another cracker.

  2. Oh no, no, no – but yes, yes, yes – my absolutely favourite chocolate flavour combo. These cupcakes are so beautiful – almost like an expresso, deep, dark, bottom with caramel covered frosting. I have friends that also yearn for this flavour combo, so to be a good friend I really should give them a try. I mean it’s only fair. Think what they could be missing out on?? Thank you for sharing such gorgeous pics and delicious recipe. Sammie
