Caramel Frosting:

“Makes enough for one 3-layer, 9” cake or 3 dozen cupcakes.
This icing tastes better if made the day before the cake because the brown sugar gives the icing a slightly grainy texture that improves if allowed to set overnight."

5 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
1-1/2 cups light brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons dark corn syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla

Using med. speed, cream butter until smooth.Add sugar, beat on low speed 2 min.Add milk, syrup, vanilla, beat until smooth and creamy, 3-5 min.Use immediately or store, covered, at room temp. up to 2 days.
