I need the look of caramel coming out of a candy bar... can actual caramels be melted and piped? Will they stick to cake or icing? I'm not sure if I should try to make caramel colored icing for that area or use caramel. I'm thinking if I used icing it wouldn't have the right shine though. Any ideas? I'd rather not make a batch of caramel filling, I only need a very small amt of it. Thanks!
Could you use the thick caramel ice cream topping? You could soften caramels and form them into the shape you want and attach w/ bc.
there is a recipe in Cake Mix Doctor for quick caramel frosting-
I've made it several times and I believe it could be piped while it is still slightly warm.
I can post the recipe later if you want.
Thank you both for your replies. I had some caramels so I was looking to go that route w/o buying anything or making up a recipe... but I ended up adding brown and yellow to the buttercream and some corn syrup for shine and viola, it came out just like caramel! I didn't think I could get the color but it worked! Thanks anywho!
