For these cupcakes I wanted something different, something I got bits and pieces from. So the concept came from Carmel Frappucino Cupcakes from ericasweettooth.com . Then since I am addicted to Red Velvet I decided to do those. Now since it is Spring Break, I was lazy and I made it out of the box again. I know, is cheesy but still very tasty.
Now I wanted it to be like coffee but with a twist, something original. After coming up with the cupcake I had to think of a background, so I gathered the colors and remembered the coffee mug I got for my parents with the name of the city we live in on it. ( The one in the picture). While thinking of that I came up with an original name and that's when I came up with this one.
Now, I had many ideas to go with these few flavors, to satisfy that I made different types. The first was the one in the photo above. For this one just make and frost the cupcake, then drizzle the chocolate and carmel on top. This will get messy.
For the one above you fill the middle with carmel and cover the mess with your frosting. It is a mix of your simple regular cupcake with a little sweetness. With the next cupcake it is just a regular red velvet cupcake. If you don't want both chocolate and carmel on the cupcake you can put one or the other.
For the cupcakes you will need these items:
- Chocolate syrup
- Carmel syrup
- Red Velvet cake mix
- Cream Cheese frosting
- And a frosting tip of choice
Follow the directions on your cake box. Then frost your cupcakes and add drizzle. If you are filling the middle with carmel then follow the steps from picture.
