The one and only recipe you’ll ever need for Salted Caramel Frosting. This buttercream recipe is perfectly balanced, incredibly delicious and can be used for just about everything! I make my caramel frosting with sweet dulce de leche caramel, which is a richer and thicker version of caramel than regular caramel sauce. This caramel frosting recipe will frost an 8-inch cake, or 24 cupcakes. It goes well with vanilla and chocolate cake, or even as a filling for macarons!

All the Caramel!
Salted caramel frosting is all about the caramel! I use dulce de leche for this recipe, making it really rich and flavorful. Dulce de leche is sweetened condensed milk that has been cooked in the sealed can, resulting in a thick caramel paste. Although you can make your own, I recommend purchasing it already premade from your local grocery store. You can also use my home-made caramel sauce for this recipe. Just place the caramel into the refrigerator to set overnight, then use in this recipe! Get the recipe: https://tatyanaseverydayfood.com/recipe-items/caramel-sauce/
