I have always loved caramel frosting. I’ve just been too intimidated by actually having to make caramel to make it. This frosting solves the problem for all of us scared of candy thermometers and soft ball stages. If you can melt butter you can make this frosting.
In addition to being a wonderful finish to any cake, this frosting also works beautifully for decorating cookies. I’ve shared how to make some adorable Halloween treats, but feel free to let your imagination run wild!
