Taste test: These cupcakes took the basic formula for the Devil's Food Hostess Cupcakes and swapped things out, replacing the chocolate cake with a yellow cake, the creme filling with a caramel one, the chocolate frosting with caramel frosting and the white swoops in the frosting with off-white ones. (Language note: The dictation software on my Mac used the word "yellowcake" — which I very much hope wasn't one of the ingredients in this yellow cake.) They also added some chunks of salt to the top.

The package contained eight cupcakes, individually wrapped. I bit in to my first one to find a nice soft feel and a delicious caramel flavor, with occasional bits of salt offering some contrast. A cross-section of the interior showed that the filling and cake were much tougher to distinguish by color than it showed on the box, but still, from the outside, the cupcakes looked quite good. Very tasty for this lover of caramel!
