Contest-Worthy Caramel Cake

9:49 PM

Well, I have to admit, I made the cake for this twice.  I was stubborn the first go round.  I knew I had a meeting to get to, but I wanted to bake the cake beforehand.  I took the cake out of the oven too soon, let it cool, came home and it had collapsed.  Oops.  Instead of baking cookies, I had to make the cake again.  It turned out beautifully.  Can’t wait for two of my dearests  to enjoy their birthday cake tomorrow!  (I’m looking forward to eating it too! And so is the oldest.  She wanted to “taste-test” it tonight.)
