Perfect for Dinner Paty or BBQ

I made this for the first time for a backyard bbq party and everyone raved about it and wanted the recipe! This is a keeper and will add to my favorite recipes.

Creamy Caramel Cake

Absolutely delicious! This was not difficult to make, but sensational to serve. An easy cake to travel with or serve, as it's prepared in the pan to serve from the pan. I also poked holes in the cooled cake so the topping would drizzle into the cake; served with freshly whipped cream it is delicious. My family wants more!

Wonderful Dulce de Leche cake!

Awesome cake! I made it for a Cinco de Mayo party for youth. The kids and the adults loved it! It was different to make, but not difficult. My family has already requested I make it again- its the first time they've liked something that isn't chocolate!

Just love caramel

I love this one, it's just a great idea putting the caramel in this one. this makes the cake. and so easy to make too. I like to put the French Vanilla wipped topping on it instead of the original. but they still taste great with either one.

Great Recipe

I made this cake for my brother at Thanksgiving(2005) and he just loved it. It was not as difficult to make as I thought it would be; as a matter of fact I had so much fun making it that I think I am going to do it again this year. My family just can't seem to get enough of it.
