Caramel Cake with Salted Caramel Italian Meringue Buttercream. If you’ve never had Italian Meringue Buttercream, you are missing out! It’s sublimely smooth and not too sweet. I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t love it – even the “non-frosting” people (you know who you are). I've made a lot of different kinds of Italian Meringue Buttercream, but this Salted Caramel version is my new absolute favorite. LOVE it!
Rich and buttery, creamy and flavorful, with just the right amount of tang from the cream cheese and bright notes from a special flavoring extract, this buttercream is sublime. It is the ideal “crusting” buttercream to create cakes and wedding cakes with a bakery-style smooth fondant look but with the classic cream cheese buttercream taste everyone loves! | cake decorating crusting frosting recipe
