I am a huge fan of caramel, I don't actual have it to eat that often, but it is a preferred flavor for me, even over chocolate, so I was excited to try my hand at making this cake. I had so much going on this month I ended up making the cake this morning, yep, being totally honest here :) Thank goodness it came together very easily, from the caramel syrup, the cake, to the browned butter frosting, this was an easy to follow recipe and yeilded a delicious cake. It was very moist and rich and the frosting just took it over the top.
