Shem Creek

Caramel Icing


  • One box of light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 stick of butter


Mix it all in a saucepan and cook over low heat until boiling. Stir occasionally. Boil slowly for 5 minutes until a drop of icing reaches soft ball stage when added to cold water. Remove from heat and beat until spreading consistency, which will be when it begins to lose its gloss and will coat a spoon. If icing becomes too hard, add a small amount of hot water. Ice sides and then top of cake.
