I made this to go with your Birthday Spice Cake. and it was a lovely complement. It was quite quick to make and I loved the very specific instructions about how to cook it. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2014.
When me and my sister were kids, mom would ask "what kind of birthday cake do you want"? The response was alway "caramel"! I have not had one of these in years, but I can tell you, for me somehow it beats chocolate at times....and that takes some doing! Thanks for posting one of my childhood favorites.
The frosting turned out to be more like a glaze - it wasn't frosting thick but was yummy according to all my coworkers.
Let me know if it should have gotten thicker.
I also saved a bit of the thick glaze and poured it on vanillla ice cream and added walnuts - it was heavenly!
