I would have to agree it does sort of look like a turtle, but even if it doesn't look like a turtle or not it is irrelevant! Because
the combination of chocolate, caramel, and pecans is amazing!

If you ever are in the Mid-West (where I am now!) and you
are able to visit a Culvers they do a Turtle Sundae and it’s very good! It’s
vanilla frozen custard topped with caramel sauce and chocolate sauce and topped
with pecans!

I've based this cupcake on that. So, I have a chocolate
cake, filled with caramel sauce, topped with vanilla buttercream, drizzled with
caramel and chocolate sauce and pecans!

#### Turtle Cupcakes

100g plain flour

20g cocoa powder

140g golden caster sugar

1 ½ tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

40g unsalted butter, room temp

120ml whole milk

1 egg

¼ tsp vanilla extract

caramel

Heat the oven to 170C and line your cupcake pan with 10
cupcake cases. Beat the flour, cocoa, sugar, baking powder, salt, and butter
until it’s a bit crumby! Combine the milk, egg, and vanilla together before
gradually adding it to the crumby mixture. Once combined beat on high for a
minute or two to make sure there aren’t any lumps and the mixture is smooth.

Using a trigger scoop fill each of the cupcake cases just
about half way. Bake for 20-25 minutes. A skewer should come out clean. Leave
to cool completely before using the Cupcake Corer to take out the middles and
add about a teaspoon of the caramel to the middles. Put the sponge bit back in
and top with the vanilla frosting!

#### vanilla frosting:

250g icing sugar, sifted

80g unsalted butter, room temperature

2 tbsp whole milk

½ tsp vanilla extract

100g pecans, chopped

chocolate sauce

caramel sauce

Beat the icing sugar and butter together until it's
completely combined. Add the milk and vanilla extract and beat until smooth and
at your desired constancy! Top each cupcake with the frosting before drizzling
over the chocolate and caramel sauce and sprinkling the chopped pecans on top!
