Chocolate and Caramel Ombre Cake

Sprout's House

This month’s Sprout’s Sensations is a serious ‘died and gone to heaven’ recipe.  A couple of weeks ago it was Sprout’s Daddy’s birthday so I decided to surprise him with a cake, but not just any cake it was an ombre cake.  Those of you who wander the internet on a regular basis have probably come across the ‘ombre movement’ -from stairs to nails, tights to furnishings and furniture – anything goes apparently.  It consists of taking a base colour and gradually lightening it several times to achieve the desired effect.

I give you the Chocolate and Caramel Ombre Cake………

It was more than good – it was like I had died and gone to heaven.  The delicious layers of vanilla, caramel, chocolate caramel and chocolate each oozing with sweet, sweet caramel sauce all covered with a slightly bitter layer of dark and milk chocolate icing.  Literally..... Heaven on a Plate!

There are a lot of ingredients…..

….. and it does take a bit of time to make all four layers plus the cooling time before  the final construction.

This is one of the few cakes that I have ever eaten where one slice really is enough!!
