Caramel Apple Dream Cake
Caramel Apple Dream Cake: three big layers of super moist apple spiced cake, made completely from scratch, frosted with sweet caramel frosting & caramel apples!
I feel like I shouldn’t have to say anything, that picture just speaks for itself.
This Caramel Apple Dream Cake is obviously incredibly dreamy and you want to make it asap.
The base cake recipe is a spinoff of the ever famous Pumpkin Dream Cake.
Except it’s made with granny smith apples and a caramel frosting that is too die for.
If you are new around here, you must be wondering what a Dream Cake is.
A Dream Cake is a gorgeous layered cake, that is super moist, and so dang good it’s truly dreamy.
It’s just so hard to choose!
The base of this Caramel Apple Dream Cake is made with butter, apple sauce, shredded granny smith apples and apple pie spice.
And oh lord, it is so good. You could eat it just on it’s own like a snack cake.
However, then we make a super buttery, brown sugar caramel. Let it cool and then whip it with powdered sugar.
And that becomes our gorgeous caramel frosting. It’s super sweet and it goes on nice and thin, not too thick.
If you like more of a traditional thick frosting, I would recommend using the cinnamon cream cheese frosting from the Pumpkin Dream Cake recipe.
However, this caramel frosting really is the perfect compliment to this Caramel Apple Dream Cake.
You can leave it as it, just frosting and cake, or you can dress it up with some fun toppings.
I went with caramel sauce, chopped pecans and caramel apples, but all of these are optional.
It is totally up to you and how fancy you feel like getting!
