I have to agree with Lygia. The frosting is WAY TOO sweet. I did follow Lygia's advice to cook the caramel long enough to melt the sugar so the caramel was smooth but the powdered sugar did not incorporate smoothly. I added enough whipping cream to get the frosting to a spreadable consistency. The frosting was delicious but after about 3 or 4 bites, you've had enough. I am going to try cutting the caramel mixture in half and using whipped cream to expand the frosting, hopefully keeping the yummy caramel flavor but cutting the sugar content. Or I would use this on mini cupcakes. The cake was nothing special, though.

This cake is a favorite of friends and family. The cake is moist and delicious, the frosting tates like candy, and the presentation is worthy of holidays and other special occasions.
