Caramel Frosting 1/3 cup butter or margarine 1/2 cup brown sugar 3 tablespoons evaporated milk 1 1/2 cups confectionery sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup walnut pieces or nuts of your choice. Melt butter in pan on top of stove. Add brown sugar and cook until sugar melts. Add milk, bring to boil. Remove from stove and add confectionery sugar and vanilla. Beat with mixer, adding more sugar if needed. Fold in nuts. Spread on cake. Note: I like to poke holes in the cake and just pour the frosting over the cake. Frosting will harden as it cools.
