Pinterest Projects is an ongoing series wherein I attempt to justify hours
wasted spent on Pinterest by making projects from some of the inspiration I find there.
A couple years ago, I visited my sister in New York and we had dinner at Butter. The only thing that I remember about that meal was the dessert: we shared a gigantic piece of cake with salted caramel frosting. It was amazing.
Ever since then, whenever I see salted caramel anything, I’m intrigued. Enter: these cupcakes, which I found via Pinterest (original recipe from Sugar Cooking) while I was searching for a cupcake recipe to make for a potluck. The verdict? I found the cupcake itself good but unremarkable, but the frosting…whoa. This frosting recipe is a culinary game changer, people. Just so, so delicious. The next time I make these, I’d probably experiment with a different cupcake but keep the frosting exactly the same. It needs no alterations.
