Caramel Cake

by - August 10, 2010



Caramel Cake from Estrel's Bakeshop became popular these days though it has been established since 1946. For it to last that long, it must be really gooooooooood!!! There shop is located at 54 Scout Tobias corner South Limbaga Brgy, Laging Handa, Quezon City, Philippines with Telephone Numbers: 372-2965; 371-7938.

To be honest, I have never tried Estrel's Caramel Cake ever in my life. But I just noticed that it was really famous so I thought to give it a try and make my own version of it. I assumed that the cake is made of Vanilla Chiffon Cake to compromise the sweetness of the Caramel Icing. I had the hard time looking for the Caramel Icing recipe. There's nothing that I could find in making a caramel cake like the Estrel's does so I searched some more. After a long hours of  googling, I stumbled in a site making a caramel which is not particularly for this cake but I thought that this could be it. So I baked the cake and made the icing and I was very happy that I did it right. I had to admit though that the buttercream icing decoration was not very nice, I did my buttercream very watery and end up that way. And because I do not have proper tools for baking yet, this things happens lol. And as you noticed the flower on the center of the cake is actually fake lol. But other than that, everything is perfect.
