Who Loves Caramel? We Sure Do!

Who would have thought that October was also National Caramel Month? Well luckily we have just the right treats for the delicious caramel indulgence!

But first, let’s take a step back into time and see how caramel came to it’s so many variations of use…


The word caramel was first recorded in the English language in 1725; it comes from the Spanish caramelo. The original Spanish word did not refer to the chewy caramel candy we know today, but more likely, to caramelized sugar. The source of caramelo is unknown, but some scholars believe it is related to the late Latin calamellus, a diminutive form of calamus, reed or cane—an implied reference to sugar cane.


In the 1960’s Americans were boiling water and sugar in deep kettles to get a hard candy. Eventually some milk and other raw materials were added to make the chewy caramel that we all know today. There are some disputes about Americans not really knowing the “true” caramel but there are still plenty of treats today that are made in the “traditional” Artisan way.12100_salted_caramel_frosting_3000


In case you didn’t know, all of our pastries and desserts are made by scratch, which includes our caramel. I’m not going to give away the exact process of our caramel making (we still would like to keep a little bit of mystery), BUT we will share with you the ingredients used in the process:

  • Sugar
  • Water
  • Cream
  • Glucose Syrup
  • Butter
  • SaltScreen Shot 2015-10-22 at 11.42.28 AM
