Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Caramel Theme Week.

This evening I enjoyed a gluten free cupcake making fest with friends. Thank you to everyone who brought cupcakes, or helped frost pumpkin, chocolate brownie, lemon coconut, and red velvet cupcakes with pumpkin cream cheese frosting, vanilla buttercream frosting, and fresh whipped cream.

Creative decorating ensued, with glazed walnuts, candied ginger, carrot marmalade, vodka soaked lemon zest, lavender sugar, coconut palm sugar, and other items.

I used a dark chocolate covered caramel with sea salt, from Marich Confectionery Co. (Hollister, CA), to top one these little cakes. The sea salt was detectable, and relatively uniform throughout the caramel, and was balanced by the dark chocolate.
