Spiced pumpkin, caramel and apples all seem to be flavors that come to my mind when I think about the fall. All dessert recipes seem to feature these ingredients in some variation or another! One of my favorite combinations is a moist, spiced pumpkin cake layered with cream cheese frosting. This year I decided to up my pumpkin spice cake game and layer in delicious caramel buttercream between the cake layers. This spiced pumpkin cake with caramel frosting tastes like heaven in every bite!
I’ll be the first to admit that I am not the best at baking cakes or decorating them. But whether you’re an expert or a novice, I encourage you to give this cake a try because like me, you’ll probably surprise yourself with a beautiful cake! Not to mention, the ingredients make this cake super moist when baked correctly. Here are some tips for baking cakes perfectly every time:
Now that you have the tips, you can make your cake! Use two tround pans to bake the cake, be sure to butter, flour and line them with parchment paper. Another tip is to not overmix the ingredients as your cake will turn out tough and dry. When you’re ready to make the frosting and decorate, make sure that your butter is at room temperature for easy whipping. And of course, decorate your cake as you see fit. Have fun with it and grab some seasonal sprinkles at the store and let your kids help!
