This Caramel Apple Cake Is The Most Gorgeous Thing You'll See All Fall

Even prettier than the changing leaves!

By Lauren Miyashiro,


When I say I'm not much of cake person, I mean it. There won't even be cake at my wedding, which everyone gave me a hard time about — including a hairstylist during a trial. Yellow, chocolate, vanilla, it doesn't really matter. Cake just doesn't really do it for me. BUT, I love to decorate it, which as a food editor, I get to do a lot. (Don't worry. I promise every recipe I share is approved by the greater cake-loving Delish team.)
This Caramel Apple Cake is my masterpiece. It's dramatic and over-the-top, but in a very rustic and autumnal way. And while it looks absolutely insane, it's easy (enough) to pull off. All you need is a vision … and some good jarred caramel.

Start by baking two cake rounds. Seeing as it's getting topped with apples, spice cake mix made the most sense to us. (But we could never refuse somebody chocolate.) While the cakes are baking, make some ganache. By now you know the drill: Pour hot cream over chocolate and stir until smooth and sexy.

After the ganache, comes the caramel buttercream. The recipe starts out looking very similar to our basic vanilla buttercream — butter, powdered sugar and vanilla — but there's some caramel and lots of cinnamon. Whipped together, it's out of this world.

The caramel apples on top aren't exactly practical, but they're what make the whole thing so stunning. So get over it. Even I, the cake Debbie Downer, couldn't refuse a slice.
