This is the cake for fall. The cake that will make people take their phones out and share it on social media, tagging you with #AmazingCake #BestBaker #CakeGoals #Wow. The cake no one will let you cut into until they have the perfect picture for Instagram. (Helpful hint: The Hefe filter is amazing for this cake!) This is the cake that will boost you to “legendary” status among friends and family. This is the cake that people will love to look at but love to eat even more. This is the cake that will make you the most-popular baker in the neighborhood. This is the cake that everyone will talk about — all the time. It’s just that good!
OK, so what is this cake? It’s a fresh apple-cinnamon beauty, and it’s the perfect way to usher in fall. It takes advantage of the “naked cake” trend and reveals its thick, rich layers of moist, apple-studded cake and fluffy frosting — that perfectly sweet caramel buttercream is the ideal complement to the traditional fall flavors of apple and spice. But here is where it gets decadent: the homemade mini butterscotch-dunked apples adorning the top of the cake. The final touch? Caramel drizzled over every nook and cranny, of course!
