Chocolate Salted Caramel Cupcakes

Today we had a snowday! I decided to spend my time off trying out a new recipe, Chocolate-Salted Caramel Cupcakes.

For this recipe, there were a few components to make. There was the chocolate cupcake, the caramel, and the dark chocolate frosting.
The cake was an easy recipe, and had a rich chocolate flavor.
This was the first time I've ever made caramel by myself, so I was a little worried about doing it wrong, but I think it came out really well.
Finally, there was the frosting. The frosting called for a lot of butter, but I ended up with way too much frosting. Next time I would recommend cutting the recipe in half.

I found the recipe on the blog 52 Cupcakes, but the recipe is from Martha Stewart. Here is the link for the whole recipe.

So, I haven't been updating recently. I've been busy on vacation and now I'm back at school doing work. 
However I never stopped baking. 

For Christmas, instead of buying everyone presents, I baked them a box of cookies. 
The three types of Christmas cookies. 

I have also been baking other things. I made a yellow cake with creamy vanilla buttercream frosting, peach-blueberry pie, and my brother's favorite, oatmeal raisin cookies. I've also been starting to cook dinner occasionally for my family.

I am going to try out more new recipes, and I will make an effort to share it on my blog.
