Caramel Mud Cupcakes for Cupcake Day for the RSPCA

My second cupcakes for Cupcake Day for the RSPCA were caramel mud cupcakes.  I made these according to Donna Hay's recipe, which is online here

The only tip that I have is to make sure you work fast with the frosting, because it sets quickly.

I topped the frosting with paw prints made of chocolate chips and larger chocolate melts, in keeping with the animal theme.

We had an amazing response to our Cupcake Day, raising over $1,000. 

Here's a pic of our behind the scenes team putting the cupcake display together, ready for sale:

Caramel mud cupcakes sound pretty delicious!

oh yum - I'd love to eat the caramel frosting but I have had trouble making it so I would be wary about this one too - and they look cute with paw prints

They are so cute! :D I love how effective but simple the paw design is!

Very cute cupcakes indeed - I love the paw-print design and should remember it for one of the kids´ birthdays! Really too cute!
And the behind the scene pic is just adorable too!
You raised quite a bit of money with all those wonderful cupcakes! Respect!
