Holy sugar-rush, Batman! I contemplated doubling the icing recipe, like several others suggested, but I'm glad I didn't! If you get it on while it is still warm and slightly runny, and work quickly, what is stated in the recipe is just enough fill and cover the cake. The cake was delicious, and so moist. All together, it was a great cake, and I will be making this, often; just need to make sure there is a cup of fresh coffee, or tall glass of cold milk to go with it!
Old-Fashioned Caramel Layer Cake

I agree with the last reviewer - the cake tasted better the second and third day! It is very good for a light cake recipe. I doubled the icing amount. If it's too thick, add a little more evaporated milk until the consistency is right. I would make this cake again.

The cake recipe was delicious, as was the frosting, but the frosting recipe did not make nearly enough and was too thick. I doubled the recipe and beat in 2-3 tbsp. of milk to make it spread easier. When you first take it off the stove it looks very thin, but after you beat in the sugar, it thickens quickly. The original recipe would make great caramel fudge.
