This looks really good! I hope that the caramel doesn't get too sticky on the cake, but otherwise it looks fantastic.

Wow. This cake is gorgeous! I don't know if mine will be quite as pretty, but I'll for sure give it a try.

I haven't had caramel cake because I usually opt for chocolate desserts. This recipe actually seems like something I'd like to make, though.

I've never had caramel cake before, but it sounds like a delicious idea. I'll have to try it out.

Caramel is my everything! A cake coated with caramel - I'll be making this recipe soon!

This looks so good! I bet it would be even better with dulce de leche ice cream

This looks amazing. It would be perfect for a summer picnic.
