I bet you’ve never tried this combination. It’s amazing. Who ever thought about orange + dulce de leche? I think it’s great combo. …. Out of this world, incredible and unique. All my favorite flavors in one. If I can add chocolate on top I will be in heaven!

Last week I baked these orange cupcakes with dulce de leche buttercream for school fundraising. The raffle tickets were sold among children and the school board picked winners. The prizes were gorgeous cakes and cupcakes baked by parents. Each winner picked their favorite cake/cupcakes to bring home and share with their family. So fun!
