For the Salted Caramel sauce :

5.  Heat the sugar over low to medium heat.  When the sugar starts to melt, gently swirl the pan but don't stir.  Cook for 5 mins or until the colour changes to brown.

6.  Remove from heat and add the butter.  Allow the butter to melt completely and then slowly stir the  mixture.

7.  Slowly, pour the cream and the sea salt.  Bring the mixture back to low heat and warm until it's a smooth sauce.  Leave to cool completely.

For the Cream cheese icing :

8.  Cream the butter until light and fluffy.  Slowly, add the sifted icing sugar.

Enjoy baking :)
