It’s the last day of cake week here on Lights, Camera, BAKE! and we’re going out with a bang! A Salted Caramel Layer Cake kind of bang. This cake is a four layer caramel cake with salted caramel between each layer, iced with caramel icing, topped with more salted caramel sauce and broken chocolate honeycomb candy bars. This is a showstopper cake fit for Hollywood!
This cake is a celebration cake. It’s in-your-face, showstopping, over-the-top and very tall! Caramel is very sweet so I added molasses to the actual cake to add richness and a deeper depth of flavour. It really is just incredible how much the molasses takes this cake from great to AMAZING! I also chose to use cream cheese mixed with salted caramel for the center filling as I felt the cake need another element to counteract all the sweetness. The cream cheese adds a lovely tang to the sweet and creates the perfect balance of flavours.
