Iron Cupcake Challenge Cheese: Spice Cupcakes with Dulce De Leche filing Frosted with Real Vanilla Bean Mascarpone Cheese

Spice Cake with Dulce De Leche Filling and Vanilla Bean Mascarpone Cheese frosting.

Spice cake recipe
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup milk
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
I like a lot of cinnamon so I added 2 tablespoons

¼ teaspoon ground cloves maybe a tiny bit more if you like these.

A dash of all spice
3 eggs


Preheat oven to 350

Cream butter and sugar together then add eggs one at a time mixing completely after each addition

Sift all dry items together

Add dry a little at a time alternating with the milk until it is mixed.

Scoop into cupcake liners with a ice cream scoop filling a little over half full.

Bake for 20-25 minute or until a toothpick comes out almost clean.

Cool in the freezer.

When cool cut a core out of the top of the cupcake fill with Dulce De Leche then replace the tops.

Frost with Vanilla Bean Mascarpone Cheese and top with your favorite fondant toppings.

Filled Middle with yummy gooey Dulce De Leche Caramel

Dulce De Leche Recipes:

Easy way:

boil a can of sweetened condensed milk for three hours on medium heat to low heat keeping the can covered with water. Let cool then use the caramel.

Frosting Recipe:

Vanilla Bean Mascarpone Cheese Frosting

8 ounces cold Mascarpone Cheese it will soften in the mixer

8 ounces real butter at room temperature

One teaspoon vanilla bean paste

Powdered sugar until the icing is thick about one to 2 pounds if the cheese is really gooey like mine was.

A couple of dashes of salt to enhance the flavor and cut some of the sweet taste down.

Place in piping bag and swirl up.
