This cake was delicious. For looking so amazing, it was so simple to make! The cake was super moist. I need to make sure that I mix the filling better next time so it is all incorporated together. I also have to try to make the filling layers more even; little things that no one else noticed though! Everyone was very impressed with the look of this cake and said that they didn't want to cut into it. I melted the caramels, but did it before hand so I wouldn't have to worry about it. I should have waited until the last minute because the caramel got too hard and stuck to the plastic wrap I covered it with. Overall, very good and very easy to make!
