This is a Martha Stewart, not a Kate, creation.
I made it 4 layers instead of 6.
I made it for Ryan's birthday.
It was amazing.
I'm married to a carb-aholic. He also happens to be a runner, golfer, and incredible athlete.
And he's in the medical profession and would not counsel his patients
to have the same "favorites" as he does.
But in all honesty if you ask Ryan what his favorite foods are he will
say, "cake, bread, biscuits, crackers, brownies, pizza, and cheese." yes.
I tell you these things because he is PICKY about his cakes, etc....and
this cake is his new favorite, hands-down.
(http://www.marthastewart.com/857647/salted-caramel-six-layer-chocolate-cake) from Martha:
some notes from me:
-yes, use a candy thermometer
-make cake and caramel ahead of time (a day before)
-use floss and toothpicks to easily cut your 2 cakes in half to create your 4 layers
(imagine each round cake is a clock. if your cooled cake
is on a piece of parchment paper on your counter
place 2 toothpicks on the outside of "12 o'clock", "3 o'clock", "6 o'clock", and "9 o'clock".
toothpicks should be centered in a way that when you slide the floss through,
the cake is cut into 2 even layers.
put a long piece of floss in between each set of toothpicks. pull floss through.
your cake is cut evenly and without a mess!)
Make for someone you love and share with friends!
