    Sounds wonderful. In the case of not having the time for the caramel to cool or not having the proper cream on hand, could one use prepared caramel syrup or melted caramels?

  10. Cady S says:

    Holy moly. The only caster sugar in my community cost $5 for 450 grams. I want to make this stuff but it's so hard to know what you can skimp on and what you can't.

    My caramel buttercream is too salty, why is this. I followed the recipe exactly

  26. darkhaven87 says:

    Anyone know why Jemma doesn't add butter to her caramel?!

  27. Ad _me says:

    Tried this today and turned out SO well. Love your videos!


    Can I put gel colouring in this as I'm wanting to make it green for grass and will it still taste like caramel? If I use salted butter will I need 2tsp of salt I was thinking it may need just 1??, Love the tutorials I bought your book and large piping tips they are fabulous 🀩😍😊 xx

  29. Lynn Ho says:

    Hi, can I use salted butter instead of unsalted for the buttercream? Since you'll be adding some salt in it? Or will the salted butter be to salty?

  30. Gacigi Mbuthia says:

    Can you use Normal whipping cream instead of double cream?

  31. Zareefa Zalme says:

  32. Allison Smith says:

    Hi first I just want to say that I love your video's . What am I doing wrong? My sugar and water has been boiling forever! and it is not turning as dark as you're caramel . Anyone else having this problem ?
