Caramel Frosting

Combine in large saucepan:

1 teaspoon soda

Pinch of salt

2 cups white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 stick butter

1 cup buttermilk

Cook over slow heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil and boil until mixture forms a soft ball in cold water. Remove from heat and let cool until lukewarm. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla, beat until creamy. When right consistency, ice cake. If frosting gets too hard add a bit of hot milk. If too soft, melt over very low heat and cook a little longer before beating again.
