Today was a beautiful day. I got to wear my skirt out! Yeay! I love wearing skirts. It’s all girly and feminine. I don’t know where I’m going with this…
A couple of weeks back; I was given the honor to decorate a dessert table. I was ecstatic! Too excited for my own good. =D I know I wanted to make a big cake because I wouldn't bake big cakes unless I have an occasion to serve them. Of course this is the perfect opportunity to try new recipes. What goes with chocolate? I know. Salted Caramel; it’s so delicious and requires only a couple of ingredients, can be eaten on buttered toast in the morning, can be drizzled on ice creams or brownies, or be turned into a scrumptious buttercream. So here is the recipe for a basic salted caramel sauce…
Original recipe: here
1 cup of granulated sugar
1/3 cup of (salted/non-salted/semi salted) butter, cut into small cubes
½ cup of heavy cream/whipping cream
1 teaspoon of salt
- Put the sugar in a saucepan over a medium heat. Stir using a wooden spoon.
- Melt the butter until it is golden brown.
- Stir in the cubed butter until it melts.
- Then, add the cream into the sauce pan and mix well. Let it boil for about 1 minute.
- Turn off the heat and mix in the salt.
Here I made cake balls or I like to call them cake truffles using my salted caramel buttercream (recipe here) and drizzle the salted caramel sauce on top. YUM! Perfect as gifts or bite size dessert!
Its sunny out, go and take in all the sun!=D
