My Little Corner of the World

This is my first time cooking caramel and after 1 failed attempt, I managed to get it right.

Why did I want to try cooking caramel? I had recently tried a salted caramel almond cake and realized that I have not cooked caramel before.

I followed cupcake Jemma’s video for the hard caramel.

The first attempt

The sugar crystallized!

The Second attempt

I changed my pan to a stainless steel thick base, added a pinch of cream of tartar, increased heat from medium to medium high, continue brushing the sides of the pot with brush and water.

And I succeeded!
