|Apple Caramel Buttercream spice cupcake|
by Scrumptious Swirls
This is what you need~
Apple Butter (I used Musselman's)
6 Caramel pieces
Batch of Buttercream (my recipe click here)
Wooden Popsicle Stick
After you have made you basic buttercream~ (recipe link)
You want to add 2 tablespoons to start of Apple Butter and mix it on medium with your buttercream
Taste it~ if you want to add more applebutter add 1 tablespoon at a time and mix again
When you have reached the desired flavor of your apple buttercream you need to melt your caramel.
Place 6 pieces of caramel in a glass measuring cup to melt in the microwave
Melt it in 30 sec intervals at 50% power ~ stir with your popsicle stick in between (it makes for an easier clean up with the caramel~ toss it instead of soaking and scrubbing a utensil)
When it is all melted quickly add it to your buttercream and mixed on medium or high until blended
You have to get it in the buttercream and mix it quickly because it will harden. When you mix it you will get little chunks of caramel throughout your buttercream! That is the other super scrumptious thing about this recipe~ candy, icing & cupcake?? Hello! So good~
Now you have Apple Caramel Buttercream!!
So I will tell you it is hard to pipe it on the cupcake pretty, so I just use a little spatula to spread it~
but it really doesn't matter because it is so good. By far one of the best I have made so far!
I hope you enjoy and it if you have any questions or comments please let me know! I would love to hear~
Peace, Love & Buttercream~
