This is how I would make the caramel glaze/icing:

In a medium pan, combine 1/2 stick butter, 1/2 c brown sugar. Cook until sugar and butter is melted and well combined, stirring constantly.
Just as the mixture gets ready to boil, remove from the heat and quickly mix in 1/4 C heavy cream or half and half.
Return to heat and stirring constantly, boil for one minute.

Remove from heat, add 1/2 t vanilla and 2 cups of confectioners sugar, beat well to remove lumps.

Cool slightly and then drizzle/pour over your cake. The caramel icing will harden up once it cools.

Thanks very much Toots. I never thought of putting caramel, on cakes. I would give u more Karma for this, but the system wont let me give the same person Karma, so soon again.

I made this cake for a cake walk we had last night at church & iced it with a caramel glaze that IMO was awesome! The glaze I made was just something I threw together at the last minute. I used 1 stick of melted butter, 2Tbsp. DaVinci Classic Caramel Syrup, somewhere between 1/4 & 1/2C brown sugar, & enough powdered sugar to make it thick, but still pourable. I'm getting ready to go make another one for dessert tonight. Oh, I also added some pecans to the streusel.
