If you find that you love the smell of crème brûlée, here’s a way to keep that smell going all the time without baking crème brûlée cupcakes every day. I haven’t tried this particular one, but I’ve used other cake flavors and love them! (View on Amazon)
How to Make Crème Brûlée Cupcakes
- Start by baking your favorite cupcake recipe. I kept it simple and used my Vanilla Cupcake recipe.
- Instead of frosting with a traditional frosting like vanilla frosting, bake and chill crème brûlée (I used super easy to make pumpkin crème brûlée).
- Spread the chilled crème brûlée over the cooled cupcakes.
- Sprinkle with regular or maple sugar and brûlée with a culinary torch just before serving.
You can mix any flavor of crème brûlée with any cupcake flavor to create your dream crème brûlée cupcakes.
