Caramel Frosting Recipe

How to make caramel frosting?

A rich caramel frosting is used to frost a variety of baby shower cakes. This recipe works especially well with the classic chocolate cake or the sour cream chocolate cake.

Notes:

Don’t overdo it with the frosting. Since it is so sweet, you may want to use it as a glaze as opposed to a frosting.
