I posted my caramel recipe in the recipe section. I usually put a thin layer of buttercream or chocolate so the caramel doesn't seep into the cake, and use a thick dam. Yummy!

I had left over caramel and ganche that I wanted to use so I made a cake and mixed the 2 together. My daughter and her friends said it was the best filling they ever had. It was 1/2 and 1/2. I was afraid that the caramel by itself would be too thin because I had read several people mentioning that they have had problems with caramel leaking. I think the ganache helped thicken and stabilize it.

consider a dulce de leche filling. it's very thick and won't seep into the cake. you will, however need a dam so it doesn't ooze out.

1. buy a can of sweetened condensed milk. DON'T OPEN IT.
2. put it in a saucepan an COVER it with water.
3. once it comes to a simmer, turn it to low, cover the pan and SLOWLY simmer for 3 to 4 hours.
4. turn off the heat and just let it cool for a few hours.

viola! dulce de leche!

You don't have to refrigerate it until you open the can.

this sounds delicious! I take it the cake has to be refrigerated after using this filling right?
