THIS ICING IS AMAZING!  And here is the recipe.


1/2 cup butter

2 cups brown sugar

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup milk or cream ( I use about half and half of each)

2 cups of powdered sugar

Melt the butter over medium heat and add brown sugar and salt, bring to a boil, stirring constantly, for two minutes.  Take this off the heat and stir in the milk/cream until blended.  Put back on heat and bring to a boil for a minute then remove from heat and let cool to lukewarm.  Once lukewarm, beat in powdered sugar a little bit at a time.  Let it sit to firm up, add milk if it's too thick, although I've never had that issue.  This will frost a two layer cake with a thin layer, but I usually double it to make it go further.
