Mini of the Month: February

Nothing's better than discovering the new mini of the month flavor from Baked by Melissa each month.  The flavors are always so creative and tasty!

Salted Caramel was sure to be a winner, right?  That flavor is all over everything these days.  A caramel cake with chocolate icing might have been enough for some, but there was also a dulce de leche stuffing.  And adding the salted dark chocolate brittle on top - pure genius!

Unfortunately, I wasn't a fan. The cake didn't seem to have much flavor at all.  As a result, it really lacked the caramel taste.  Maybe a little caramel drizzle or a caramel based stuffing would have given it the punch it needed.  The dark chocolate chunk on top was certainly the highlight.

Are you a salted caramel fan?

  1. I'm usually not a big fan of the sweet/savory mix in desserts, but that chocolate on top of the cupcake is totally calling my name, haha. :) Happy Friday!
