Somehow it has become tradition that I make cupcakes for every important family event so I wanted to share my families favorite recipe (for the past year) which comes from my all time favorite blog howtoeatacupcake.net

The cupcakes in question are the Salted Caramel cupcakes which normally earn me a couple of strange looks when people hear the word salted in conjunction with cupcakes.

http://www.howtoeatacupcake.net/2008/07/salted-caramel-cupcakes-finally.html

A couple of notes about the recipe though - during the frosting portion it says about eight minutes total for the sugar to melt. I have found that the amount of time it takes really depends, the first time I made these it was on my mothers electric range and even on high heat it took close to half an hour for the sugar to finally melt, whereas when I made them on my gas stove it took about half that amount of time.

I also came out with a few more than a dozen cupcakes when I made these, probably closer to fifteen.

Finally the amount of frosting created by the recipe is far more than sufficient provided you aren't smothering your cupcakes in frosting. It tastes really great on its own though and my mom has been known to eat it plain.
