We made and used these stunning golden Caramel Spirals to adorn our Chocolate Caramel Mille Crepes Cake, but they can be used to decorate any cake recipe.
Before you start making the caramel, look through your kitchen for tools on which to create the caramel spirals. You may use the stainless steel handle of a whisk and/or a knife sharpening steel.
The handle needs to be uniformly thick, and cannot flare out at the end, or you won't be able to remove the curls without breaking them.
It looks better if there are at least two different sizes of spirals on your cake. I used a large round whisk handle, a sharpening steel, and a small metal whisk handle.
