This is a cooked fudge-like frosting, perfect for a spice cake or brown sugar cake. It would be great on a chocolate cake as well.
Use this caramel frosting to ice spice cake, a jam cake, or similar cakes. Dip the spatula in hot water if the frosting becomes firm and difficult to spread.
3 cups light brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons corn syrup
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 dash salt
3/4 cup cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
In a large saucepan, combine ingredients and mix well to blend. Bring to a boil; cover and cook 3 minutes.
Uncover and cook to 238 F on a candy thermometer or until soft ball forms when dropped in cold water. Cool for 3 minutes.
Beat until thick and spreadable. It should begin to lose its glossiness.
Spread on layers and over sides of cake.
As you frost the cake, the frosting might become too stiff. Add a little hot water whenever necessary to make it spreadable. Dip the spatula in hot water to smooth frosting out if needed.
