Crack through a layer of caramelized sugar to reveal a layer of sweet cream below, but you’re not done.  Below the cream is your favorite fluffy cupcake!  Welcome to the world of crème brûlée cupcakes!

My culinary torch may be my favorite kitchen toy – and it’s not super expensive.  Playing with fire (in a controlled and safe way) is super fun!

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!

How to Make Crème Brûlée Cupcakes

  1. Start by baking your favorite cupcake recipe.  I kept it simple and used the Ultimate Vanilla Cupcake recipe.
  2. Instead of frosting with a traditional frosting like vanilla bean buttercream frosting, bake and chill crème brûlée (I used super easy to make pumpkin crème brûlée).
  3. Spread the chilled crème brûlée over the cooled cupcakes.
  4. 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.  If you give them a try, I’d love for you to share photos and reviews on the Cupcake Project Facebook page.  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
