100% – The only frosting we will eat in our house!


1 cup granulated sugar

4 tablespoons water

1/2 cup cream

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon sea salt flakes, plus a little extra for garnish

1 cup (2 sticks ) unsalted butter, room temperature

2 cups powdered sugar, sifted


To make the caramel: In a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan, dissolve the granulated sugar in the water over medium heat. Once the mixture is dissolved, increase the heat and allow the mixture to cook until it turns a deep amber color. Remember that stirring is prohibited here; All you have to do is gently turn the pan.Add cream: Remove from heat, add cream and vanilla extract. Prepare for the mixture to bubble vigorously. Continue stirring until smooth and then add the sea salt. Place the caramel in a bowl and let cool completely.
Butter base: Beat the butter in a large bowl until creamy, then gradually stir in the powdered sugar until a foamy mixture is formed and everything is well mixed.Melt the caramel: Stir the cooled caramel into the butter mixture. Stir until the frosting is light and fluffy. If it feels too soft, you can achieve the perfect consistency by briefly cooling it down and then pureeing it again.

Variations and tips:

A touch of bourbon: For a grown-up touch, add a tablespoon of bourbon to the caramel before it cools.
Sweet Settings: If you prefer a less salty caramel, reduce the sea salt to just a pinch for a classic caramel flavor.Storage Solutions: Excess frosting can be stored in the fridge or frozen so you’re always ready for impromptu baking adventures.
Decorative accents: Brighten up your frozen treats with dried edible flowers for an elegant, spring-like look.
Quality Matters: Choosing a high-quality sea salt flake not only improves the taste, but also adds a delicious texture to your frosting.
