Caramel Filled Cupcakes with Whipped Caramel Frosting

Have you ever wanted to whip up some cupcakes that have the “WOW” factor without having to slave in the kitchen for hours and hours?  Well, these Caramel Filled Cupcakes with Whipped Caramel Frosting will do just that!

These cupcakes are made from a box and the caramel can even be out of a jar (although I tell you how to make it from scratch), but when you combine it all together, it’ll seem like you spent hours making them and they are just melt-in-your-mouth fabulous!

Of course, if you want to make a yellow cake from scratch, you could do that and they’d be just as amazing, but if you’re looking for an easy short-cut that still impresses, please try these!

The caramel is also easy to make and the fact that you fill up the center of the cupcake with it just makes them even more amazing (use an apple corer to do them – that’s’ the trick!).

They’re rich and decadent and if you love caramel, this recipe will become a favorite for you.

So.. here we go.  If you have any questions, please leave me a comment!

    I was just wondering I’ve made my caramel from condensed milk, is there a way to incorporate that into a buttercream as such?

    • says

      Mmmm, I bet that would be amazing! I’d just make a basic buttercream, whipping the caramel in at the end and adjusting the amount of liquid until you get a good consistency!

    I am making about 100 cupcakes for a graduation party… if I were to incorporate the caramel filling, could I freeze them for a few days? Would it effect the caramel?


    • says

      I’m honestly not sure. If I were you, I’d either do a practice run and see how they turn out, or freeze the cupcakes plain, then fill with caramel after you thaw them.

    Pillsbury’s box mix already has pudding in the mix, so you add an additional pudding mix? thank you.

    • says

      Yes, I do add a small box (3.4 oz) of instant pudding mix to the Pillsbury cake mix that already has pudding in it! It works beautifully!
