And then THIS happened.

So, since it turns out I was a big fat liar when I said that my last cake post was going to be my last cake post, just thought I’d share a photo of my most recent cake, because it turned out rather nice, (even if I do say so myself) and there’s something very gratifying about doing something and having it turn out well.

Pretty, no?  I decided to move away from buttercream and instead went with this salted caramel cream cheese frosting recipe (which was neither as salty nor as caramelly as I had hoped, but still yummy.)  I don’t think it has the stiffness or stamina of buttercream, but it tastes loads better.

  1. Holy cow- you rock the cake decorating! If you want it more caramelly (clearly not a word) double the caramel recipe and then just remove a bit (to use on ice cream or popcorn) and put more caramel in the frosting. You can always add more salt as well~
    Beautiful cake!

    • Aw thank you! I’ll try that next time. Got loads of compliments on the icing, despite the fact that I totally screwed up the caramel because apparently I don’t know what colour amber is. Ah well, live and learn.
