Birthday Cake for a Friend.

So since I found a caramel recipe I liked.. I had to make it again the next day and try it out as a filling for a cake. Decided to spruce it up a bit and put Milk Chocolate shavings around the outside of the cake. Note to self.. Do this part before decorating the top! Made it a little hard to watch the top and get the chocolate to stick to the outside. This is a four layer Double Chocolate, Caramel filling and Caramel top cake! Yummmmy..

I love the fact that my friends are willing to let me experiment on them! Thanks guys.

Little Cakes in an Ice Cream Cup!

I wanted to try my hand in making Caramel Filled Chocolate Cupcakes with Sea Salt on top. I could not find any holders I liked and ran across these Ice Creamm Cups at Jo Anns.. Well I decided to give it a go and see if they would bake ok in these cuties. And they did. They baked up perfect. I also decided to try out making home make Caramel filling. Oh boy.. The first batch I burnt.. Yikes.. Then quickly put it under cold water and the entire thing hardened up like a rock inside my pan. Very funny after I figured out It would come out with hot water! But then I learned my lesson.. Add the correct stuff in the correct order. LOL So the second batch was heaven.. Love the recipe I found for the caramel. Who knew it was so easy to make caramel.

A little birdie told me they wanted to try these.. I might just have to make another batch for a Memorial Day BBQ we are going too.. hmmmm???
