We were going for a pub crawl to celebrate Hubby’s college roommate’s birthday. I offered to bring cupcakes. He loves coffee flavored things, so I had quite a few options when I flipped through Crazy about Cupcakes. I decided on the Carmel Mocha cupcakes.
As usual, when I start baking, I get really excited and tend to bake way too much. Since I wanted to make the Carmel Mocha cupcakes “full-dairy” for the birthday boy, I wanted to make some cupcakes that I would be able to eat. I decided to use some strawberry preserves that we had paired with French Vanilla cupcakes. When I make two batches, I tend to make one from scratch and one from a box mix.
