    I’ve tossed leftover mashed potatoes into bread dough, but never would have thought of using them in a cake. Great idea!

    I have made this cake only using 2 9″ round cake pans & spreading a caramel icing on it!! The icing recipe is : 1/2 c butter cut into cubes
    1 c packed brown sugar
    1/4 c canned/evaporated milk
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    2 c powder sugar
    Cut butter ito cubes & melt over low heat with 1 c brown sugar. Add 1/4 c canned milk & bring to boil stirring constantly. Remove from heat & let cool to room temperature. Mix in 2 c powdered sugar & 1/2 tsp vanilla. spread over top of bottom layer & place top layer on, then spread over top only of top layer. The sides DO NOT get icing. This will serve 10-12
