This is a really easy way to make any cake look
good ridiculously indulgent and over the top. It comes from this recipe for caramel rocky road cake , which looks amazing, but who has time to bake four cakes?! I wanted an impressive looking cake for my friend Emily’s birthday last week, so I took the rocky road cake topping from the link above and added it to a mud cake.
All I did was arrange mini flake bars, mars bars and marshmallows on the cake before drizzling (store bought) salted caramel sauce all over the chocolate mountain. I made it on Thursday night, covered it and when I lifted the cover off on Friday morning the smell of caramel literally smacked me in the face. It was aaaaaamazing.
I love how the caramel has oozed out of the mars bars.
I think this topping would look even better on a white frosted vanilla cake. Next time!
