  3. In a large bowl, cream the butter. Add the sugars and beat until light and fluffy. 

  4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add in the vanilla and beat until smooth.

  8. Meanwhile, in a separate medium bowl, beat the banana and butter for the frosting until smooth. Add the vanilla and creamer until incorporated. 

  9. Slowly add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, and beat until well combined. 

  10. Frost cooled cupcakes and top with additional caramel bits. 

Recipe Notes

Sifted flour will produce a lighter cupcake, where unsifted flour will produce a denser cupcake...take you're pick. They're both delicious!
