Prep:

2 Hr

Cook:

35 Min

Ingredients

1 box
yellow cake mix
3/4 c
water
1/3 c
vegetable oil
3
eggs
1 c
brown bananas, smashed
1/4 tsp
baking soda

FOR THE CARAMEL:

15
caramels, unwraped
1/4 c
heavy whipping cream

FOR THE CREAM CHEESE FROSTING:

1 stick
butter softened
8 oz
cream cheese, softened
4 c
powdered sugar
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 Tbsp
heavy cream, if needed for consistency

Directions Step-By-Step

1
preheat oven to 350.
2
line 2 6 inch round cake pans with parchment paper and butter and flour them or use floured cooking spray.
3
you will have some batter left over. you can also use 2 8 inch pans or 2 9 inch pans for thinner layers.
4
mix cake mix, water, oil, eggs and baking soda in a large bowl on low for 1 minute.
5
increase speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes. reduce mixer back to low or stir for a stand mixer and mix in bananas.
6
fill prepared pans 2/3 full. (if you are using 6 inch pans you will have some batter left over. make cupcakes.
7
make the caramel: while the cake is in the oven add the caramels and whipping cream to a microwave safe bowl.
8
heat on high in 30 second increments, stirring between each to help melt caramel.
9
once caramel is completely melted, place in the refrigerator to cool completely.
10
note: this makes enough caramel filling for a 6 inch layer cake. double recipe for a larger cake.
11
when getting ready to frost the cake, remove cooled caramel from the refrigerator.
12
it will be stiff. beat with a hand mixer until the caramel becomes more creamy, only a few minutes.
13
now it is like a thin frosting you can fill your cake with.
14
make the frosting: beat butter and cream cheese until fluffy.
15
slowly beat in powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, mixing until frosting has formed.
16
mix in vanilla. if needed for consistency, add heavy cream, 1 tablespoon at a time.
17
to assemble your cake, place some frosting in a pastry bag fitted with your choice of tip (i used a 1M).
18
if needed, trim the top of your cake layers to make them level. place 1 layer on cake pan.
19
pipe a rim around the edge with cream cheese frosting, creating a barrier for the caramel filling.
20
evenly spread caramel on the bottom layer. place top cake layer on the caramel.
21
frost the cake as directed. ( i frosted the entire cake with a thin crumb coat of frosting and then piped rosettes on the sides with my 1M tip.
22
i didn't have enough frosting to do rosettes on the top, so i made it smooth and added sprinkles.
23
Note: to decorate the entire cake with rosettes or similar or for a larger cake, double the frosting.
