Caramel Buttercream Frosting

Buttercream is one of the perfect places to infuse flavor when making a cake. Or any dessert that can use buttercream. Caramel buttercream seemed like a no brainer for a caramel inspired dessert. I used a cream based caramel for this recipe because it incorporated into the buttercream better than a tackier caramel would. This recipe took longer to make than an average buttercream recipe solely because the caramel had to chill after being cooked. This recipe is incorporated into my Great British Bake Off Challenge Week Four Showstopper!

Peppermint Buttercream Frosting

When making cake or other sweet treats, frosting is a great addition. It brings flavor to the table as well as decoration potential! Buttercream Frosting is one of the core types of frosting. It’s easy to make with only four ingredients and its absolutely delicious with its silky-smooth texture. Buttercream is also able to take on a plethora of flavor profiles. For this recipe, I am using a peppermint frosting to stay true to the original recipe of the Great British Bake-Off Week One - Technical Challenge!
