Awesome Caramel Cake that rocked Thanksgiving!!November 26, 2009
I have always been reluctant to make caramel cake because I always figured that caramel was going to be too difficult. However, this recipe was outstanding. The frosting is wonderful, and the cake is very buttery, almost pound cake like, but not as heavy. The frosting has about a five minute lapse from easily spreadable, to set, so there is plenty of time to spead the frosting prior to it setting and becoming too thick to spread. A word to the wise, don't walk away from the frosting while waiting for it too cool because it is easy to miss your time between spreadable and candy like. I added pecans too it because I had left overs from my german chocolate cake, and it was AMAZING!! I have also played with the frosting recipe as candy. This frosting also makes a GREAT CANDY. Follow the recipe as normal, when caramel is able to make a soft ball, stir untill no gloss, while cooling add pecans. Place on wax paper and spread as thick or as thin as you like (I prefer thick in a small square dish), before the candy/frosting is completely set, but set enough to hold slices, slice, allow to completely cool, and wahla! the perfect caramel candy!
