Perfect caramel icing

October 08, 2017
This made a perfect caramel icing - not too runny like others I have tried. Just be careful that you don't take too much time whisking in the powdered sugar after removing from the heat. I did, so icing the cake felt like I fire drill to do it before it dried completely.
