Vanilla Vanilla with a surprise...

I originally wanted to make these with mini Cadbury Creme Eggs, but I could only find the large ones, which wouldn't do for a less-than-giant-sized cupcake. Plus, Easter is already over! So I decided to go with Dove milk chocolate with caramel candies... pretty good substitute, I'd say.

The recipe I used was Billy's Vanilla Vanilla recipe -- vanilla cakes with vanilla buttercream frosting. Personally I thought the frosting was overly sweet (6 cups of confectioner's sugar!!!)... plus, my apartment was too warm for it and it melted pretty quickly. Luckily, I was fast enough to get some photos in before it started melting down the sides of the wrappers!

Here it is with the surprise! I just put the candy on top of each one and covered with a little bit more batter. The cakes themselves came out great.

If any of Adam's coworkers are wondering why they didn't get to eat any, it's mainly because we don't want you to catch my strep throat, which showed itself after I finished making them. And we're pretty sure you don't want any strep cakes.
