Caramel frosting Edit

  1. Combine the brown sugar and milk in a large saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil and cook stirring constantly, to a soft-ball stage.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Add butter and vanilla, and beat at high speed until thick enough to hold to the cake when spread.
  5. If the frosting becomes too thick, beat in a few drops of hot water.
  6. Spread the caramel frosting over one layer of the cake, top with the other layer and cover the top and sides of the entire cake with the remaining frosting.
