These Caramel Cupcakes with Homemade Yellow Butter Cake are all kinds of delicious. Whip up a batch today!

What a treat partnering with Werther’s Original in honor of National Caramel Day!  I’ve developed a cupcake that you are going to absolutely love.  You have a homemade yellow butter cake with crushed caramel candies melted throughout when baked and my homemade buttercream on top with melted Werther’s Soft Caramels.

In celebration of National Caramel Day on Tuesday, April 5, Werther’s Original distributed 1 million pieces of rich, creamy caramel for commuters and candy lovers in the New York City area.  They got to see Werther’s giant, 6-foot-diameter candy bowl for themselves on National Caramel Day, located near the Times Square subway entrance.  How fun is that?!  Wish I was there to see that!

Oh my goodness, I’m nuts for these cupcakes with Werther’s Caramels.  Great for your upcoming parties!  Hope you enjoy!
