Over at Salsa Pie she also has instructions on making everything from scratch.
- 1 boxed chocolate cake mix (I used a Fudge Chocolate cake mix)
- Ingredients required to make the cake (mine was 1/4 vegetable oil, 3 eggs and 1 cup water)
- 1 can white frosting
- Carmel topping or Homemade Carmel topping
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar,
- 1 Tbsp cornstarch
- 1 cup cream or milk
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 1 Tbsp sea salt
Once cake has cooled, frost with canned frosting.
Mix together brown sugar and cornstarch in saucepan. Turn on heat to medium -high.
Bring to boiling then turn heat down to medium and cook for 8-10 minutes stirring regularly. Allow to cool before putting on the cake.
Use a large spoon and drizzle the carmel topping on top of the cake.
I put 1 Tbsp of sea salt in a bowl and started to use the spoon to shake over the top, but it went on too heavy and I ended up using my thumb and forefinger and pinching a bit and the sprinkling on the top for better control.
