This dessert features a moist sweet potato cake with a blend of brown and white sugar, a spice blend with ingredients like cinnamon, and pure vanilla extract. The cupcakes are topped with a velvety cream cheese frosting and a homemade salted caramel drizzle, offering a well-balanced and flavorful treat.
