Achieving Those Delectable Layers

The inspiration behind this cake hails from Dorothy’s Naked Carrot Cake. Dorothy, a truly exceptional blogger and individual, is a personal favorite of mine. I prepared her carrot cake for my father’s birthday last summer; he’s an old soul with a deep affection for carrot cake. It was beyond delicious, and what made it even more special was Dorothy’s ingenious method of transforming the two baked cakes into four delightful layers.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Position toothpicks around the cake’s perimeter, using more if needed for added stability.
  2. With a serrated knife, gently cut along the line of toothpicks.
  3. I prefer to make small cuts on one side, rotate the cake, repeat the process, and gradually work my way through.
  4. Carefully separate the layers and generously frost between each one.
  5. For added stability, consider briefly freezing the cakes before slicing them into layers.

Perfecting Your Frosting Game

In my humble opinion, there’s no frosting in this world quite like the cream cheese frosting. Apply a generous layer of this divine frosting between each layer of the apple spice cake.

Enhance it further with caramelized apples on top.

You can even introduce apple bits between the layers for an extra burst of flavor. It’s simply delightful.

If you’re craving more depth of flavor, a pinch of cinnamon in the cream cheese frosting can work wonders.

Simple Caramelized Apples

For an added layer of charm and flavor, top your apple cinnamon cake with delectable caramelized apples. These beauties are both visually appealing and incredibly easy to prepare:

  1. Cut one Granny Smith apple into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Place them in a saucepan with brown sugar, cinnamon, and a small amount of butter.
  3. Stir over medium heat until the apples become soft, and the sauce thickens.
  4. Spread this heavenly concoction over the cake. It’s simply delightful!
