Sparkle & Shine Metallic Dinner Party

Gorgeous Caramel and Cream Layer Cake

Gorgeous Caramel and Cream Layer Cake


1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
6 large eggs, at room temperature
¼ cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
1-cup heavy (whipping) cream
1 cup chilled Caramel Sauce


Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat the oven 350°F.  Butter two 8-by-1 ½ -inch round cake pans and line the bottoms with parchment or wax paper.

Sift the flour 3 times onto a sheet of wax paper.

With an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat the eggs, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl for 8 to 10 minutes, until the mixture is very thick and pale and the volume has increased at least 3 times.  Sift half of the flour over the mixture and fold in with a whisk just to combine.  Repeat with the remaining flour.  Drizzle the butter over the mixture, whisking just to combine.  Divide the batter evenly between the 2 pans.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the cakes begin o pull away from the sides of the pans.  Cool for 10 minutes in the pans on a wire rack, then turn out of the pans and remove the paper. Turn right side up to cool to room temperature.

With an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat the cream in a medium bowl just until it forms stiff peaks when the beaters are lifted.

Cut each cake horizontally into two layers with a long serrated knife.  Transfer one layer to a serving platter.  Spread ½ cup of the cream over it with a long metal spatula, drizzle with ¼ cup of the caramel sauce, and top with another cake layer.  Repeat with 2 more layers.  Place the top layer on top an spread with the remaining cream.  Drizzle the caramel sauce over the top in a spiral pattern, letting some of it drip down the sides, if you like.  Serve cut into wedges
