How to make Caramel Icing


EASY CARAMEL FROSTING RECIPE

2-1/2 cups brown sugar, packed
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup homemade unsalted butter

In a medium, heavy saucepan, bring the sugar and cream to a rolling boil. Boil one minute. Add soda, and boil one more minute. Remove from heat. (see note below)

Add butter, but do not stir yet. Let the mixture cool. Beat well. Add chopped pecans if desired.

NOTE
There is a secret to making this frosting creamy, light, and fluffy. First, set aside 2 to 3 tablespoons of the heavy whipping cream for later.

Next, make sure you let the mixture cool COMPLETELY (refrigerate as others suggested) DO NOT STIR. After about 1-1 1/2 hrs in the refrigerator the mixture should be ready.

It will look like a thick, gooey, paste. Remove from fridge, and mix with mixer. Add the 2-3 tablespoons of the reserved heavy whipping cream alternately with powdered sugar until desired consistency is achieved.
