I am freaking out. I have never use caramel as a filling on a cake. I have 4 weeks to figure this out. Anyone knows  where that I can buy the filling. I am afraid of making it because I read a lot of information about making it at home and scare me because a lot of people said they over cook it and didn't notice until they try to cut the cake and it could be hard. Can someone please help me??? I need help either a recipe that is easy to do without getting hard while it is inside the cake or a place where I can buy it. Thanks so much.

I know they sell caramel ice cream topping. Would that work? Also I have seen cans of what they call dulce cajeta which is the condensed milk which has been cooked slowly and has already turned into the caramel that you can buy in the cans. It is in the grocery stores right beside the sweetened condensed milk area. 

 

Maybe someone else here will have a recipe for you to go by. Homemade is always better than store bought.

Good luck!!!

Most cake supply shops should cake caramel filling, just like the other fruit fillings.  I buy mine in 2 pound sleeves.  Dulce cajeta is caramelized milk.  The sugar canalizes and taste just like it.  But if you really want caramel, then ask you suppliers if they carry it.
