Caramel Frosting

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by CoffeeB

This is a great flavored frosting for apple cake. I haven't tried it on anything else, but I"m thinking even on carrot cake for a change from the standard cream cheese frosting. It makes quite a substantial amount and so you may want to adjust accordingly. So, serving amount is ???

This frosting is delicious. I used 2 cups of powdered sugar and added a teaspoon of vanilla to it, and it went perfectly with dicentra's Blackberry Jam Cake #451273. I was able to frost the whole cake, put a thin layer between the two cake layers, and have a little bit left over so it made the perfect amount of frosting. Thanks for posting!
