Club BAKED: Caramel Apple Cake

This month's Club Baked recipe was selected by Melissa, Lulu the Baker.  I was so excited to make this when it was selected.  I made this three weeks ago.... into cupcakes, which came together rather quickly & easily.  The caramel sauce was superb!!  But I could not get the frosting to work for me at all.

So this past weekend, during our SNOWSTORM, I decided to take another crack at it.  My yummy caramel sauce came together.

My cupcakes were easy and ready to be frosted.

I read the P&Qs section of Club Baked and those who were successful said to keep the mixer churning and the frosting would eventually come together.  I was so ready to try again. 

When I went to turn on the mixer to make the frosting... THE POWER WENT OUT!  Cupcakes and caramel were still fantastic.... will have to try to whip up the frosting another day.

Visit Club: BAKED for more information on joining and to see how others did.
Check out Melissa's blog for the recipe.

The larger cake was an ordeal for sure and I personally love cupcakes. Definitely give the frosting another go when you have time (and electricity). As you saw, I had problems too. Your caramel is a perfect color. Nice job.

Looks like a lot of people did cupcakes, great idea! the frosting was hard but it tasted great.You'll have to try it again when you have power.

Bummer about your power. Guess you'll just have to make this a third time. :) Your caramel looks yummy!

Kirsten said...

So sorry about your power......definitely try the frosting another's fantastic (just be patient with it)!

Your caramel looks amazing! I did cupcakes too but not caramel or frosting. Hopefully you've recovered from the storm.

Shoot, stupid power! Maybe give the frosting another chance on another cake. Third time's the charm, right?

Oh no! can't believe the power left your frosting stranded. Glad everything was enjoyed even without frosting!
