Sometimes you just need a piece of a classic chocolate cake. In my Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Cake, I use my go-to chocolate cake recipe as the base. Using dark chocolate cocoa really helps bring out that rich chocolate flavor. I pair this with my salted caramel frosting, which is one of the best flavor combinations.

This Apple Almond Caramel Cake matches perfectly with my apple almond white chocolate buttercream. I got the idea for this cake recipe from the almond white chocolate gourmet popcorn from a local Salt Lake candy company. I kept adding more and more flavors and elements to this cake, and it turned out to be quite a masterpiece! 

Cake #4: Caramel Apple Cheesecake Cake

I created this cake based on my No-Bake Apple Cheesecake Bars. After tasting those I immediately started thinking about how I could turn the recipe into a cake. This Caramel Apple Cheesecake Cake is a sweet combination of my bars, my Apple Cider Donut Bundt Cake, and my Oatmeal Biscoff Cake. So many delicious ingredients are baked into one cake. This one is a must-try!
