Dulce De Leche Cupcakes

I have been trying for days to work on this recipe and get photos for it done and get a post typed up for it. Alas though, it was one of those weeks where you already had a lot planned/scheduled and then fate threw you some curve balls because, hey life is just dull if not chaotic at times. We had planned for the beginning of t-ball season, I.E.P. meeting for my 5 year old, planning and booking two birthday parties, getting invites out, my sister’s birthday and oh yeah, I had to have a biopsy done on my ankle on Wednesday. Curve balls were my soon to be twin niece(s)/nephew(s) decided to get contractions going for my sister yesterday at only 33 weeks so we had a fun, little, impromptu sleepover last night with my other niece and nephew. Good news though is the babies are behaving with medicine and still incubating in momma. Then my meds I am on for whatever is wrong with me (they are testing still to figure it out) make it so I can barely focus or stay awake. One day this week when talking to my mom she asked me if I was drunk because of the slow, slurred speech. So as you can imagine trying to work on the very sciencey part of recipe creation with fuzzy brain function is a very slow process but with perseverance I was able to get one done to share with all of you.  🙂

With Cinco De Mayo being this weekend, I like of every other food blogger out there just had to do something Mexican inspired. So without further ado I give you dulce de leche cupcakes with dulce de leche cream cheese frosting.
