Salted caramel cup cakes: Salty sweet cup cake for everyone.

Caramel is very easy to mix with other flavor, the sweetness of the caramel is getting better when comes together with the saltiness too.

Salted caramel cup cakes
Cup cake is always welcomed, ^^, it's easy to make too (plus it's easy to eat, haha). 
For this time the cake is simple cup cake with brown sugar, brown sugar makes the taste of the cup cake go very well with the caramel.
The caramel that I use for this cup cake is thicker than simple caramel sauce, because it will be use as the filling of the cup cake too.
I use the icing and butter frosting, I rarely use this kind of frosting but it's easy and the taste is not bad at all when you eating it with the saltiness of the sea salt.
Serve it with hot tea or coffee that will melt the cake in your mouth, and yes, it's delicious with the saltiness, sweetness that' s going very well together.
