Dark Chocolate Caramel Birthday Cake

This is one of two birthday cakes I made for friends last weekend. This is a dark chocolate almond cake torted into four 8-inch layers filled with dark chocolate caramel buttercream and caramel. Crumb-coated with caramel and then frosted with dark chocolate caramel buttercream. I decorated it with tootsie roll roses, purple-tinted vanilla buttercream, double-chocolate pirouline cookies, and purple ribbons.

That cake is wonderful. Mixing dark chocolate and purple was a creative and successful idea. Nice work.

Sorry I couldn't get back to you sooner with your request for this recipe. Thanks for your kind comments on my cake! The recipe is simple - I just followed the buttercream recipe on the back of the Hershey's special dark cocoa powder box. Then I whip in half of the large container of that caramel dip - I forgot the name of the brand - but it is the same one recommended for the Snickers cake on this site.
