Caramel is surprisingly easy to make and imparts a rich, delicious flavor to this buttercream frosting. Use it to decorate our Caramel Layer Cake or Caramel Chiffon Cake.

    It was all butter. Not very much caramel flavor. The consistency made me think I didn’t follow the directions, but I did. To the T. Disappointing.

    Please trust me - this recipe is awful! All you will taste is butter and it is a pain to make! I certainly wish there was a warning review like this before I wasted my time making this frosting!
