    I am requesting that Paula Deen host a show demonstating how to make a yellow cake and the old fashion caramel frosting. This frosting requires that the sugar be caramelized in an iron skillet. Few people have the knowledge of this technique.

      Is this the frosting that is just poured over the cake and hardens quickly as it trickles down the sides of the cake? My Mother used to put this frosting on her spice cake and it was wondereful. I cannot find this recipe and have not been able to duplicate.

    Clarice, I'm no chef, but I have a recipe for the

    caramel icing that you mentioned. It is delicious

    and probably not as difficult as you think if I can do it.
