Now I am ready to tackle caramel cake. It was mentioned in the first chapter of The Help. I have never tasted a caramel cake but since caramel is one of my favorite flavors I am willing to give it go...and I am sure that Tom won't mind helping me eat it.
The author, Kathryn Stockett, provides a recipe for the frosting click here and I found that a few bloggers like Jen & Company and Alpaca Farm Girl have already posted recipes for the cake. Even Paula Deen has a recipe but I don't think I have enough butter in the house to make hers!
There are even some cupcakes inspired by the book made by Cupcake Project. And 20/20 did a story on the book and sampled Caramel Cake This is a tough decision as to which recipe to try. I may have to break down and try more than one of them.
A strong contender is this one from allrecipes.com It looks simple and simple works for me.
I think it might be time for slice right now!
