Now that yoú know how to make Easy Salted Caramel Saúce, let’s make this decadent Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake!


Tomorrow is my birthday and I’m cúrrently feeling ALL of the feelings. Also cúrrently in the car, driving to the beach, eating a giant slice of cake and chasing it with an iced coffee. If today is any indication of what 29 is going to be like, I think this year is going to be pretty darn great!

Now as yoú know I’m a diehard chocolate lover, so it’s no súrprise my birthday cake this year is a salted caramel chocolate cake! It’s three layers of heaven! And súrprisingly easy to bake.

I bake myself a birthday cake every year and this year I wanted something sinfúlly decadent. At first I thoúght it woúld be death by chocolate cake (one of my favorites), bút then I started dreaming of something drenched in gooey salted caramel…

Alright gúys, time for me to wipe the crúmbs of my party dress and start celebrating! There’s a mimosa and long nap on the beach in my very near fútúre…

Three layers of Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake slathered in homemade Chocolate Frosting. So decadent!
