Bake for 32 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool cake in pans for 10 minutes. Remove and cool completely on wire racks. Wrap and chill layers at least 1 hr or up to 24 hrs. (This step enables you to split the cake layers with ease).
Using a serrated knife, slice cake layers in half using horizontal to make 4 layers. Spread 1/2 cup cream cheese frosting; sprinkle with cheesecake bites. Repeat procedure with remaining 3 layers, frosting and bites, omitting cheesecake bites o the top of last layer. Frost sides and top of cake with remaining frosting. Drizzle desired amount of caramel sauce over cake, letting it drip down the sides. Chill until ready to serve.
