A short time back, one of our local grocery stores had cake mixes on sale really cheap! Well, I couldn't resist ---with the huge sweet tooth that I have, so of course I bought several boxes and decided to give BUTTER PECAN a try. You can hopefully see in the picture that it was a nice, spongy cake and OH! so tasty! The only problem was; what kind of icing!?!?! The following is a recipe for caramel icing---sooooooo good! You won't be able to stop eating--WARNING for fellow sweet tooth owners!

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 cups (or more) powdered sugar

1. Melt butter in the microwave.
2. Mix in brown sugar and microwave for 1 minute.
3. Stir in milk and microwave until boiling, STOPPING TO STIR every 30 seconds.
4. Sift powdered sugar.
5.When the butter and sugar mix cool to room temp. stir in 1 cup of the powdered sugar until smooth.
6. Continue adding powdered sugar 1/4 cup at a time until spreadable. Ice the cake!
