Caramel Frosting?

lulubelle | Sep 8, 2008 08:12 PM

I made the vanilla bean cupcakes with salted caramel frosting from the recipe section,( ) for my book club last night. The cupcakes are some of the best I have ever had, but I was disappointed with the frosting. As one poster suggested, I doubled the amount of caramel in the recipe, but although the texture was beautiful, the frosting was basically sweet, with no discernible caramel flavor.

I would love to make these cupcakes again for an upcoming birthday party, but not with this frosting. Does anyone have a great caramel frosting?
