Ultimate Salted Caramel Cupcakes

These cupcakes are amazing!! I made them for my family and my aunt asked my uncle the next day after having one if he wanted to split one and he said heck no I want a whole one! He said this is his absolute favorite! He requested that I make them for his 60th birthday party at the end of the month! Thank you for sharing.
