This is a great tasting caramel, and a great filling for the cake. That being said, if you follow the recipe EXACTLY, and take the caramel to the "soft ball" stage, what you are making is NOT a sauce or glaze, IT IS CARAMEL CANDY!!! It is a delicious candy, but a candy none the less. Properly prepared caramel candy is NOT runny. The caramel candy was runny while hot, but when it cooled on the cake, it became a semi-hard chewy caramel that was impossible to cut through w/our crushing the cake beneath it! Terribly dissapointing! If you make this, DO NOT TAKE THIS TO SOFT-BALL STAGE AS DIRECTED! Maybe take it off the stove before it reaches that stage/temperature. I'll make this again, but using a caramel ice cream topping instead.
