Chocolate Salty Caramel Cupcake

Tiffini Soforenko, the executive chef and creator of Yummy Cupcakes, has dreamed up over 300 innovative cupcake flavors. This favorite is a chocolate-caramel cake topped with chocolate buttercream, a drizzle of caramel, and a sprinkle of sea salt.

Red Velvet 1/2 and 1/2 Cupcake

For those that can't make up their minds, Yummy Cupcakes offers the Red Velvet 1/2 and 1/2. It's a traditional red velvet cake topped off with two different types of frosting: cream cheese and cocoa cream cheese.

Brown Sugar Cinnamon Cupcake

Cupcake Biscotti
