Apple Cake With Caramel Drizzle Icing

This recipe originally came from my friend’s aunt Sal. My mother-in-law had a version of this recipe and would make it before she put up her apples in the Fall for winter baking and eating. I continued to make this recipe before putting up sweetened apple slices and applesauce so that we had them well into the winter months. There is no law that says you can’t go to the supermarket and buy enough apples to make this delightful taste treat at any time of the year. In today’s world, we are not held captive to when the apples grow in our area. This cake is too rich to eat more than one square. It’s what every good dessert should be: gooey and sweet. If you have a sweet tooth and love apples this is just the cake for you. Mix apples, sugar, oil eggs and vanilla. Add rest of ingredients and mix well. When cake is done, remove from oven. Cake can be served plain, sprinkled with powdered sugar or poke holes in top and then pour caramel icing over cake. This drizzle icing has a rich caramel taste, goes on gooey and makes any cake into a can’t resist sweetness. This recipe is so simple and was originally used on the Apple Cake recipe but can be drizzled over any bundt cake that cries out for that caramel taste such as spice cakes. Mix all ingredients in a saucepan and cook for 2-1/2 minutes. Dessert Recipes20 Apple Recipes–What to Do With So Many Apples?

Choosing The Great Wedding Cake You Must Know

Cupcake wedding cakes are a great alternative to traditional wedding cakes. These wedding “cakes” are really just cupcakes displayed on cupcake stands. Yet many of these cupcake wedding cakes are quite fancy. You can really tailor them to suit your style. They can be small and elegant or they can be large and extravagant. Cupcake wedding cakes allow for each guest at the wedding to have their own individually decorated cupcake. A traditional cake is all one flavor. However, a nice benefit of having one of these types of cakes is that you can have different flavored cupcakes from which your guests can choose. These cakes can also be a lot more affordable than traditional regular cakes. This is especially true if you make it yourself. In fact, making one of these cakes yourself is not very difficult at all. If you choose to have one of these cakes, you will need to decide who will make the cupcakes. Have a caterer or bakery bake and design them just for you. Buy them pre-made (and perhaps add some of your own decorations).
