    Excessive is right! These cupcakes are gorgeous, but my teeth hurt just from looking at them. One question: after a day, do the cakes start to absorb the filling?

      Just a little – the ddl is really thick so it doesn’t absorb into the cake like a fruit puree would. If you cut one in half on day 3 or 4, the ddl will still slowly run out of the center.

    Oh how lovely and amazing. I don’t think any cupcake can be excessive!

    It reminds me of an asian delicacy called leche flan. I’m pretty sure that your cupcake will taste a bit of it with the leche on it.

    I’m confused on the amount of dulce de leche. Is it 14 ounces total – 1/2 cup in the cake, 1/3 cup in the frosting, and the rest as filling in the cupcakes? Because the ingredient list lists dulce de leche twice – 14 ounces and then 1/2 cup. This originally made me think I needed more than one can, but then I saw that the recipe instructions only call for dulce de leche to be added once.

    Unapologeticly Sweet…That’s the warning I put on them and they still disappeared (luckily before I got to eat more than one…or three). I look at your gorgeous pictures and then ooh over the recipes and know I just have to make whatever it is, but I mini them and take them off to work. That way I get the fun of trying new things (that always turn out as fabulous or even better than I expect), but I don’t gain 50 pounds shoving them all in my mouth. Thank you!!!!

    This looks so yummy. I have been looking for a great vanilla recipe for a vanilla cupcaked filled with nutella. You mention the 1234 cake, what exactly is this ? or could Iuse this recipe and just take out the dulce de leche from the recipe.

    Thx

      1234 = 1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 3 cups flour, 4 eggs. It’s easy to remember! You can remove the dulce de leche from the recipe and increase the milk/buttermilk to 1 cup. Also, increase the sugar to 2 cups. That will get you a plain vanilla cupcake!

    Hi! I’m a big meringue and ddl fan (or manjar as we call it in Chile) but not so keen on buttery icings as a whole, and was wondering if the swiss meringue buttercream tasted more like a meringue or a buttercream. Weird question, I know! :) Thanks!

      It has the texture of a buttercream. As far as the taste, it’s just very, very sweet. Lots of vanilla/caramel notes with some butter notes.

    I’m assuming this recipe calls for all purpose flour (and not cake flour). Just wanted to confirm. Thanks! I love your blog and this recipe looks so delicious!

      You could really use anything – whole milk, plain yogurt… or you could add 1 1/2 tsp white vinegar to a 1/2 cup measuring cup and then fill the rest with milk. Let it sit 10 minutes and proceed.

    Yes, I’m going to enjoy these very much, many thanks for sharing this awesome recipe filled with my favorite dulce-de-leche…
    A great, easy to follow recipe, great way to use up frosting from peaches-pecans-dulce de leche cake if there’s any left, if not it’s a good excuse to make more that I can share.
    Love the ‘tips’ for any-one having problems in making this amazing frosting, apologies, I forgot to mention this in previous posts…
    Have pinned recipes, tips, etc.
    Many thanks, much appreciated,
    Odelle Smith. (U.K.)
