Turtle Cupcakes

Last week my husband asked me to bake something for one of his business meetings. Bake. Something. That left the door wide open for what that something could be. One night I was sitting thinking about all the stuff I had to bake (I had volunteered to bake something for my daughter’s bake sale fundraiser at her school too) the idea of turtle cupcakes came to me. Chocolate, caramel, and salty pecans together in one bite. Seriously, what is not to love?

This is what I did to make my turtle inspired cupcakes: I used a gluten free yellow cake mix for the base (I was lazy and I didn’t want to run out and buy all the individual flours needed to make them from scratch), chocolate ganache, caramel buttercream (YUM!), and topped them with chopped salted pecans. I am very happy with how they turned out. These will make a reappearance sometime soon! Hmmm,  I wonder if I can convince Penelope that she should have a turtle themed birthday party.
