This challenge was one I really looked forward to.  I love caramel!  My first order for BC was a Caramel Cake.  So, it is definitely near my heart.  This was however, a “challenge” for me.  My first round of caramels came out as toffee.  I also burned the caramel syrup the first time.  I found the icing was a smige too sweet, but any icing made with powdered and not white sugar would be more sweet. However, the browned butter gave it a flavor like no other, one I love.   The cake was very dense and not as flavorful as I had imagined.  The caramels, with the subtraction of the ground vanilla bean, were divine!  So all in all, the icing with a spice cake and caramel syrup would be a hit in my house!
