Did I ever tell you guys about the time I wanted to be a cupcake maker? It was right around the time when the cupcake craziness happened. 2005-2006ish. There were cupcake shops everywhere. I found myself in the kitchen all day sometimes expermenting with different cupcakes. I even took a cake baking class at a local craft store so that I would better my skills. (Totally recommended by the way, I still use those skills today;0) But anyway it was short lived because I soon learned that everyone wanted cupcakes on the weekend and well I like my weekends:0)
But I never lost my love for baking. During one of those classes I learned how to make amazing meringue buttercream along with a perfect birthday party buttercream. So when it came time to try out some of variations of that birthday buttercream I knew International Delights creamers would come in handy this month. It’s SUPER easy to do because all you need to do is substitute the milk for the creamer. I even added a little more because I’m fun like that. But what you have at then end is a wonderful flavored frosting perfect for cakes, cupcakes and even brownies!
For this variation I added a store bought chocolate fudge to the side of the piping bag to get a beautiful swirl affect. But the main recipe only calls for a few simple ingredients. Butter, powdered sugar, creamer and vanilla.
The possiblites are ENDLESS with creamers like this and the flavors are amazing!!!!

In a standing mixer fitted with a whisk, mix the butter until fluffy. Mix on low speed and add the sugar cup by cup until well blended and then increase speed to medium and beat for another 3-5 minutes until well blended.
Add vanilla and coffee creamer and continue to beat on medium speed for 1 minute. You can add more cream if needed for spreading consistency that you desire!
To add the two tone effect. Take your piping bag and with a knife spread the dark fudge onto the side of the bag.
Fill the rest of the bag with the Salted Caramel Frosting and pipe the cupcakes by cutting off the end of the bag.
