Number Of Ingredients 9

1 (16.25 ounce) package white cake mix
1 ¼ cups water
½ cup caramel ice cream topping
⅓ cup oil
3 large eggs
3 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
2 pints heavy whipping cream
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon turbinado sugar (such as Sugar in the Raw®), or to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line two 12-cup muffin tins with paper liners.
  • Mix cake mix, water, caramel topping, oil, eggs, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract in large bowl with mixer on medium speed or beat vigorously by hand, about 2 minutes. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 14 to 19 minutes. Cool in the tins for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely, about 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, mix whipping cream and brown sugar together with an electric mixer until sugar has dissolved. Add remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla and continue mixing until peaks appear in the cream.
  • Frost cooled cupcakes and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
