I have loved this Caramel Icing since I was a little kid. I always asked my mom to add it to every cake that she baked! When I was about ten years old, she taught me how to make it. She said that I should learn how to make it since I love it so much! Now, that I am an adult, I still love this icing over each cake that I bake! Anyway, I have listed all the ingredients and directions so just follow them and you are good to go! Don’t forget to share this with your loved ones as well! Before I forget, make sure to tweak it to your liking. You are more than welcome to add your preferred ingredients. Make it your recipe and maybe one of these days, I get to see your recipe and learn a thing or two from it! Have a wonderful day, friends, and I hope you are well today. Enjoy!
