We love this frosting. It's been through 5 generations in our family. If I make this frosting when "certain" people are around, I have to guard the frosting or it disappears spoonful by spoonful.

  • 1 stick

How to Make Caramel Frosting

Step-by-Step

  1. Melt butter in pan on top of stove over medium low heat.
  2. Add brown sugar and milk.
  3. Boil over low heat for 2 minutes, stirring all the time.
  4. Remove, cool (just to luke warm and if it gets to thick you can place it back on the stove for a few minutes). I set the pan in a larger pan of cold water, stirring every 5 minutes, to cool it faster if I am in a hurry.
  5. Add vanilla and powdered sugar. Beat well with hand mixer and frost cake.
  6. Will frost a 9x13-inch cake.
  7. If you want a thicker frosting then double this recipe if you are making a layer cake.
  8. This is the icing we use on the Autumn Surprise cake, but is good on about any cake you can think of.
