These cupcakes turned out very moist. I don't buy heavy whipping cream so I made a light icing recipe. I did add the 1/8 teaspoon of salt to my icing so I got the "salted" taste.

Salted Caramel Cupcakes
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup 2% milk
FROSTING:
1/3 cup sugar
4 teaspoons water
1/8 teaspoon salt
1-1/3 cups heavy whipping cream
 
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition. 
 
Fill paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. 
 
In a large heavy saucepan, combine sugar, water and salt. Cook over medium-low heat until sugar begins to melt. Gently pull melted sugar to center of pan until sugar melts evenly. Cook, without stirring, until mixture turns an amber color. 
 
Remove from heat; gradually stir in cream until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl; cover and refrigerate for 4 hours. Beat until stiff peaks form. Frost cupcakes. Yield: 10 cupcakes.
