  1. Combine brown sugar, butter, and milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil; cook for 1 minute and remove caramel mixture from heat.
  2. Blend confectioners' sugar into the caramel mixture using an electric mixer until you reach a spreadable consistency.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Have your cooled cake close by; this icing hardens quickly as it cools.
