Celebrating Caramel Today

Tomorrow is National Caramel Day and since I don't post on Tuesdays usually, I'm celebrating today. I'm a big fan of chocolate-covered caramels in the Valentine's box of candies, I love turtles and my favorite cupcake is the Salted Caramel at Cake, Hope and Love, my local bakery with the best cupcakes in town.

This recipe for Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Cupcakes is here and if you make them, please send me on in the mail...or I'll drive to your house...or whatever has to happen. I tried salted caramel cupcakes on a whim, thinking it might be weird, but it turned out to be my favorite. 

If you like caramel, you should totally try this recipe at Live Love Pasta's site. I've made it before and it's a big hit at gatherings.

And though I have no tie-in craft for caramel day, I do have this watercolor card I made for the Flickr Hero Arts Scramble this past weekend. Love my new Antique Rose stamp. I used Distress Inks in Picked Raspberry, Salted Ocean, Mowed Lawn and Squeezed Lemonade.

My coffee card below caught their eye and they featured it on their Rainbow post over at A Blog Named Hero, and that made me happy, even though I didn't win the random draw.

Lots of pinks today and lots of caramel goodness...and today my son got his braces off, so he can have a caramel to celebrate, lucky boy!

Happy Monday,
