Sugar and Spice: Chocolate Chipotle Caramel Filled Cupcakes by Fields of Cake, Maine

I think that right now would be a good time to tell you about something delicious I ate. 

The item in question? The "Vinny" (same Vinny served as inspiration for these cakes as for this art, btw), a masterpiece baked up by Carrie Fields, who you may know better by her stage name, Fields of Cake. When asked what these ambrosial morsels actually consisted of, her response was as follows:

Those yummy morsels were chocolate chipotle cake filled with Hot Damn caramel (cinnamon schnapps and chipotle homemade caramel) and toasted almonds topped with cinnamon sugar buttercream. 

The proper reaction to that, of course, is OMG. If you're in the Portland, Maine area, I suggest you look her up immediately to commission a batch; if not, she also posted the recipe on her blog.

You can find the recipe here!
