Get Mixing

a) Preheat your oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas mark 4. Pop 16 cupcake cases into your cupcake trays.

b) In a large bowl, combine the Betty Crocker's cake mix with the eggs, water and vegetable oil (see pantry for both amounts).

c) Gently stir until fully combined, 2-3 mins.

Ready, Steady, Bake

a) Divide the cake mixture between your cupcake cases.

b) Once the oven is hot, bake the middle shelf until the cupcakes are risen and golden, 18-22 mins, or until a rounded knife inserted in the centre comes out clean. TIP: A few crumbs are okay.

c) Allow the cupcakes to cool completely before decorating.

Begin the Frosting

a) While the cupcakes bake, add the creme fraiche, white chocolate chips and half the salted caramel sauce to a small saucepan.

b) Stir on medium heat until the chocolate is completely melted, 2-3 mins.

c) Transfer the white chocolate mixture to a medium bowl, then cover and refrigerate until firm, 45-60 mins.

Chill Out

a) Set aside 3 tbsp of speculoos biscuit crumb in a small bowl.

b) In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, remaining speculoos crumb and the milk (see pantry for amount).

c) Stir to combine, then cover and refrigerate until you are ready to decorate.

Get Decorating

a) Once the cupcakes and frostings have cooled completely, gently combine the creme cheese and white chocolate mixtures.

b) Divide the frosting between the cupcakes and gently spread across the top, using the back of a spoon to create a swirl on top.

Sprinkle and Serve

a) Decorate the frosted cupcakes with a drizzle of the remaining salted caramel sauce and a sprinkle of the reserved speculoos crumb to finish.
