    Here is my long gone mother-in-law’s recipe for caramel icing. It has never, ever failed. My daughter gets a caramel frosted cake on each of her birthdays as do I.

    Gwen’s Easy Caramel Icing

    2 cups white sugar
    12 big marshmallows
    1½ sticks of butter
    ½ cup buttermilk
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    1 tablespoon of lite Karo or corn syrup

    Mix in a very large pan as this stuff will boil over. Cook on medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture forms a ball when dropped in cold water. Beat with a mixer until it cools and starts to stiffen. This amount covers a one layer sheet cake with plenty to spare.

    A few weekends ago, my husband and I traveled over 100 miles (one way) to go to Fountain Acre Foods, where we found the store closed on a Saturday because of a wedding of one of the workers. What a disappointment that was for us. We had planned this trip for almost two weeks, and I even Googled it to find where it was located. Why didn’t they inform the public (online) that the store would be closed that day? The man outside of the store told us that there were flyers handed out and posted for the locals to let them know about the store being closed for the wedding…but nothing posted on their website. With the price of gas, that trip turned out to be a very expensive letdown. Needless to say, I was very upset!
