Dulce de Leche
For my friend's wine and cheese party, I made Dulce de Leche cupcakes, since the party had a Spanish theme. The cupcakes were brown-sugar vanilla, slightly scented with orange, to tribute the famous Sevilla oranges. I filled them with pure dulce de leche, and made a dulce de leche buttercream. Then I sprinkled them with raw Demerara sugar. They were sooooooo rich and delicious! Everyone loved them. Although it was kinda hard to find dulce de leche, even being in Arizona. I went to a few specialty stores, but eventually found it in my local grocery store, in the Hispanic foods aisle. But you can also make it yourself, by heating a can of condensed milk for hours and hours. Maybe next time I'll try that. But for now, the store bought stuff worked just great.
