Yield Makes enough for two to three 8-inch 3-layer cake

- 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon fleur de sel
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- Combine 1/4 cup water, sugar, and corn syrup in a medium saucepan; stir to combine. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cook until the mixture reaches 350 degrees on a candy thermometer, about 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in another small saucepan, mix together cream and salt. Bring cream to a boil and cook until salt has dissolved, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
