The homemade frosting that you'll frost this Southern Caramel Cake with takes a few steps, but it is completely worth it. When you make a cake from stratch, it deserves a delicious frosting to go along with it! This layer cake is stacked with vanilla cake and a rich, caramel frosting that your guests will want to eat all by itself. Cooking sugar until it gets an amber color brings out a deep, rich flavor that is sinfully scrumptious. All you need to do is whip the caramel in your stand mixer until it becomes spreadable. This caramel cake recipe is a Southern favorite, and soon it will be yours, too!
