    If you use self rising flour, you don’t use baking powder or salt. So, maybe, you were supposed to use self rising flour. If you use plain flour, you need to add salt and baking powder.

    Does this taste like caramel frosting? It sounds like it might. I think I would like it on a spice cake.

    This icing/frosting is excellent on Cinnamon rolls as well! 🙂

    Proud of you Kevin, watching what you ate and your cokes too……that really takes will power and you did it 🙂
    I agree with Susan, when you bake a cake you need something in it to make it rise…..I bet you will make sure the next time eh ?
    Next time just buy a box of Duncan Hines cake mix and make the homemade icing…..that is what I do….and to me no homemade cake taste as good as Duncan Hines…..in my opinion…..
    and way less trouble to bake, and probably cheaper……99 box, when on sale….and I bet the spice cake would be good with that icing on it too….
    I never buy store icing in a can or whatever its’ in, it taste horrible….I always make my own….usually a cream cheese with powdered sugar…..can’t beat it……giving the icing you posted a 5* as it sounds delicious….

    I have made this icing for years. I make mine in the microwave. You need to stir the butter and sugar often so it won’t get a burnt taste.

    Kevin, there’s an extra dot on the ingredient list with nothing listed. Is there another ingredient that was suppose to be there?

      Good eye, Pam, I removed the dot…no missing ingredient, just a sloppy typist (me!)
