Salted Caramel Mocha MEGA Cake
Fall is the Season of Hot Drinks
Nothing screams fall more than a hot salted caramel mocha! It warms not only your hands but your heart! This cake is perfect for fall and coffee lovers!
To make my Salted Caramel Mocha Cake, I began by making 3lbs of my Ultimate Chocolate Cake and 3lbs of my Vanilla Toffee Cake but replaced half of the toffee with nuts to better match the taste of the drink. Each layer is filled with a layer sweet chocolate ganache with chopped up hazelnut, toffee bits, and sea salt sprinkled on top. The layers are stacked with both a coffee infused buttercream as well as chocolate Swiss Meringue Buttercream to which the entire cake is then coated in a mocha buttercream. The cake is then decorated with salted caramel macarons as well as coarse raw sugar, toffee bits, and extra sea salt. Lastly, the cake is topped off with a spread of some more sweet Italian Meringue Buttercream and a final drizzle of caramel.
