Sprinkles Cupcakes - Salty Caramel Cupcake

This yummy cupcake is a Sprinkles Salty Caramel cupcake, which was available at the end of last year.  I snagged one by being in the Georgetown area at the time that the day's free flavor was announced, woo!

The cupcake is a caramel cake with a buttery caramel cream cheese frosting topped with fleur de sel.  The fleur de sel flakes added so much flavor and really enhanced the sweetness and the caramel flavors of the frosting.  I did find the frosting to be a little overwhelming after the first bite, but I'm personally more of a fan of lighter/whipped frostings in general.  If you're a fan of salty sweets and/or caramel, I'd definitely recommend trying this cupcake!
