I have a couple of cakes I top with caramel, but have struck out repeatedly making my own caramel (comes out gritty and dull). As simple of a process as it is, i just can't get it right! So i've resorted to using a pre-made caramel dip (for apples, in the produce dept) that i warm and add brown sugar, butter and the liquor of the moment (usually cognac). it pours beautifully, tastes great and has amazing shine! Problem is it's expensive for the amount of cakes that i need it for. Can any of you recommend a pre-made caramel i can find in bulk that's good?
