ISO caramel icing for applesauce cake

midtownDiner123 | Sep 26, 2008 04:30 AM

i'm making an applesauce cake and i want to frost it with a spreadable but good holding - and not overly sweet - caramel frosting. the frostings i've found could work but i want to avoid caramel fudge!! i'm a new baker. i wonder if i could get a rec. here are some i've found online:

caramel buttercream:

standard buttercream w/caramel extract:

caramel that isn't buttercream:
moosewood's caramel:
betty crocker:

caramel cream cheese:
test the waters and mix a can of dulce de leche with cream cheese until i get the desired consistency?
