So, I really wanted to try to incorporate my home made caramel into a cupcake frosting.


Since I'm not a big fan of buttercream I wasn't too sure about this one, but I used about half a cup of vegetable shortening and half a cup of butter with about 1 1/2 - 2 cups of homemade                                                                         caramel sauce (sugar and milk                                                                               cooked about an hour and a half).


The consistency was great, I really enjoyed piping on the cupcakes, but taste wise I'm still not sold on buttercream...

This was also my first try at making a buttercream rose...
