I swear I am building up to the shower. I had intended to have a sweet week where I just showed all the dessert recipes one after another. However, I thought you might get bored of that. Also, I was distracted by our character development series and Valentine’s day, so I’ve had other content I’ve wanted to give you. For the shower, I did mini-cupcakes with a salted carmel buttercream as one of the options. The concept was to do a bunch of mini desserts so that people could sample a few different things. A friend of mine is a chef. We were talking the other day about baking, as she has enjoyed more of the pastry side of her job lately. She said, “I have a mean salted caramel recipe, and I don’t say ‘I have a mean…’ about anything.” I asked if she would be willing to share, and she was. I made it, and she was right. It is really good. I haven’t experimented much with buttercream, but I’m glad I gave it a chance. It was a hit at the shower. Part of this recipe includes making a caramel, which can be challenging. I added photos to help walk you through the process.
