Behold the Dark Castle cupcake. Ain't it sweet? It's literally sweet: a chococolate cupcake filled with dulce de leche. ("Dulce" is Spanish for "sweet".)

In its recipe, Kathy Bejma of Metalcakes explains how to make dulce de leche from scratch, and links to a blog post explaining how to fill cupcakes with stuff. That post's comments are amazing: lots and lots of ladies (and a man or two) dishing on different techniques for filling cupcakes. There are many cats and many ways to skin them.

This Saturday, Dark Castle are playing Scion Rock Fest (set times). I'm very excited to see them, and to hear their new, Sanford Parker-produced album forthcoming on Profound Lore. Below is "Awake in Sleep", the song that inspired this cupcake. (Dig the 7/8 riff at 5:02!) The video and audio quality is, well, sweet.
