Exactly what I remember as a child. Yes it is very sweet, so try pairing it with a spice cake or something that is more savory than sweet.
The icing finishes very nicely, but it is too sweet!
So good on the chocolate mayonnaise cake. I will try on other cakes also!
we followed the instructions/ingredients in this recipe to a T, and we didnt really like it at all. it was very sweet and left an unexplainable taste in my mouth.
My mother had the same cookbook and I still make this after 30 or so years! It is wonderful and I put it on my super moist homemade banana cake!
i just threw out my old caramel frosting recipe. this is so much better. Creamy, caramelly and easy. A real treat and new family tradition
This is the same recipe that I have been using for thirty years now, really good on a moist marble cake. I was going to post it and my gosh here it was. So I am rating a very good fast easy carmel fudge frosting with five stars.
