Mix from a box and frosting from a can...but still delicious! I had never noticed the caramel frosting before, so I had to try it. They were good, but I'm not sure if I'll ever buy it again. I am still a chocolate girl, and prefer plain ole chocolate fudge frosting. It's a good thing I only bake when we have some type of occasion, because I have no will power at all. Thankfully, most of the cupcakes were eaten at my mom's house, so there weren't any left to temp me.
