  4. 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.
