Caramel Icing
Sweet, decadent caramel icing is perfect drizzled over sour cream layer cake.


This icing is great on our Sour Cream Layer Cake, but you can also use it on apple cake, coffee cake or other desserts.


  1. Melt butter in a small saucepan. Stir occasionally until it is just brown and foamy.
  2. Stir in brown sugar and milk. Stir until it begins to bubble around the edges. Allow to cool slightly. Stir in powered sugar and salt vigorously.
  3. If icing is too thick to spread, stir in more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time. Frost cake quickly.


  1. Hi Frances,

    This is actually the recipe for the caramel icing that covers the whole cake. The caramel drizzle on top of the cake is actually just caramel sauce, which can be homemade or store bought. Hope this helps!
