Ingredients
  • 200g unsalted butter
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 1 and a ½ teaspoons of salted caramel flavouring
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅓ tin of caramel
  • For the icing: Most of the rest of the caramel, reserve a couple of teaspoons for the top
  • 150g softened salted butter.
  • 250g soft cheese
  • 100g icing sugar
  • For the topping: 2 teaspoons caramel
  • Fudge and caramel pieces
  • Flaked chocolate
  • Chocolates
  • Or choose your own!
Instructions
  1. Cream together the butter and sugar
  2. Add the eggs one at a time
  3. Add the salted caramel flavouring and stir
  4. Fold through the flour and baking powder until well combined.
  5. Transfer to two greased and lined baking tins and cook at 190 degrees for approx 20 mins until risen and springy to the touch.
  6. Allow to cool for a few minutes in the tin, then turn out to cool completely on a rack.
  7. Using approx a third of a tin of caramel, sandwich the two cakes together.
  8. To make the icing, beat together the butter and cream cheese until well combined and fluffy. Beat in the icing sugar.
  9. Stir through the caramel
  10. You need a stiffish icing so add more icing sugar at this point if needed.
  11. Cover the cake with the icing using a knife and a 'swirling motion' to give it an interesting look.
  12. Swirl some caramel over the top of the cake using a knife to create patterns.
  13. Sprinkle your chosen toppings over the cake.
  14. Stack high with chocolates, the ones I used were dusted with bronze which added to the overall look of the cake, if you can't get similar achieve the same look using edible shimmer powders.
