I give you my dream cake: fluffy vanilla cake layers filled with a delicious salted caramel buttercream, salted caramel sauce, and chocolate chips, and decorated with pretzel sticks and twists. Delicious!
Yup. That’s my dream cake, right there. Well, my dream cake right now. I dreamed it up last week right after I posted about my Roy Fares’ cookbook giveaway. It’s only fair, right? I ask you about your dream cake, and I come up with a dream cake of my own.
Speaking of the giveaway, and dream cakes, I’m giving away a copy of ‘United States of Cakes’. A beautiful cookbook with delicious recipes, such as this amazing Apple Cheesecake I made last week. Entering is super easy. All you need to do is answer the following question: What is your dream cake? Easy peasy, right? So head on over to the giveaway post for a chance to win that cookbook!
I love the answers I’ve received so far. They’re giving me so many ideas for new recipes! For example, Gonny likes chocolate cake and cheesecake, and nuts and caramel. So I’m thinking a swirled chocolate and salted caramel cheesecake with a chocolate and pecan cookie crust, topped with caramel, more pecans and chocolate. Kind of like a turtle cheesecake. Sounds good? Can’t wait to try it 😀
But let’s focus on this cake first. The Salted Caramel Pretzel Cake.
It’s delicious! And sooooo pretty. On the inside, that is. The outside kind of looks like a bunch of twigs or something. The Rocking Rebel said the cake reminds him of a fortress, and he reckons I should have dubbed it the Game of Thrones cake.
