Caramel Frosting Recipe

Elijah didn't seem to care about a birthday theme this year. We had Pokemon, Batman and minion decor littering our home and his only request for a cake was that it was "yummy." PHEW because "yummy" happens to be a specialty. He gave his seal of approval on my concept: chocolate cake with caramel frosting. I've been dreaming both of these sugary recipes up for a while, so I was happy it sounded yummy enough for the birthday boy.

I knew the Caramel Frosting would be delicious, but I had no idea just how delicious. I loved every single thing about this frosting, from the texture (it's on the firm side) to the caramel flavor (caramel is my FAVE....er, one of my many faves) to the way it complemented chocolate cake absolutely perfectly.

It's a cinch to make, even for a baking beginner. This frosting would go great on anything and I mean anything. Swap out the Peppermint Frosting on these Triple Chocolate Cookies with Caramel Frosting, for example. I envision slathering it on about a thousand million different varieties and flavors and shapes of baked goods.

ENJOY. You will! The "yummy" cake this frosting was made for is coming soon!
