Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour three 9 inch pans and set aside.
In large bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a small bowl, combine the milk and vanilla. Sift together flour and baking powder; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk mixture, beginning and ending with dry ingredients. Mix well. Pour batter into prepared pans and bake about 30 minutes or until a tester comes out clean. Cool completely before frosting.

In a heavy medium saucepan, combine the sugar, butter and milk. Cook over medium-low heat until mixture reaches soft-ball stage in cold water. Remove from heat, add caramels and beat. When mixture is almost of spreading consistency, add nuts and continue beating by hand until mixture is proper consistency. Spread on cooled cake.
