      I have yet to make the cupcakes, but I did make the frosting and got RAVE reviews on it. Quote, "Oh my gosh, this is good...I haven't had homemade caramel frosting like this in a long, long time." I even got a compliment from my mom who told me my great grandmother used to make this stuff. Thanks for posting..I can't wait to make the cupcakes, too.
      [PS I made this frosting to top "Sweedish Brownies" http://www.food.com/recipe/swedish-brownies-23293]
