I'm a huge fan of Gooseberry Patch (duh, right?). Today is National Cupcake Day and they posted a very yummy recipe on their Facebook page. This recipe, along with 100 others, will be featured in their new cookbook, 101 Cupcakes, Cookie & Brownies. This book is set to be released in January 2011! Facebook friends were given a sneak peek into this book, today! If you are not a fan of their page you really need to be. Go Fan them, now!
How delicious...a gooey caramel-topped cupcake on a stick! This yummy recipe was shared with us by Angie Biggins of Lyons, Illinois. Thanks, Angie!
