The result was delish! If ever my friend was being cut out of the will, she is quite sure she is now back in!
For the base I used my regular chocolate cupcake mix but for the icing I made my favourite cream cheese topping, then split the icing in two and added a dash of caramel essence to the one half. (As they were wanting something smarter I opted for the essence as opposed to actual caramel treat as this may have been too sweet.) Then gently eased both the vanilla and caramel icing into my piping bag and iced them both at ones to create the swirl affect.
