This cake is very sweet. Might be over the top for some people but, I like my desserts super sweet almost to the point of gagging. Kinda weird I know. Maybe it's so I will eventually have to stop eating it.
The cake is chock full of apples, streusel and toffee bits. Then it is frosted with either caramel frosting between the layers and then cream cheese frosting on top with caramel drizzled on it or cream cheese frosting in between and on top with caramel drizzle. This time I did cream cheese on all of it.
Here is the cakes cooling before frosting. See the streusel on top. Here it is in the fridge trying to speed up the frosting setting since it is so hot in my house today.
All done ready to transport to my sisters. Sorry about the pics.
