Sticky Date cakes are a favourite dessert for many people, myself included.
This is a really great variation to the normal sticky date cake. This version makes it into a 4 layer cake, filled with a caramel icing, and each layer drizzled with caramel sauce. Finally, finish the top layer with piped icing, drizzle with caramel sauce and top with toffee shards. A beautiful decadent cake is the end result.
Serve each slice with extra caramel sauce and your taste buds will be in for a very special treat.
The ingredient recipe for the cake component is enough for one cake only. I make two cakes for this recipe. I mix the ingredients separately for each cake. You can simply double the ingredients and mix it all together and split when you pour into the baking pans. However, I find it easier to mix each cake separately. The downside is, of course, extra bowls to washup.
