Hey you all, it has been a while, if you follow me on my other social media, you have probably seen I have been  in Mexico ( but more about this in a separate blog-post)
I just got back yesterday, I love being at home with my husband, my kids and in my own kitchen, my absolute favorite place to be anytime.
Sharing today a recipe for a delicious cake,  that cake has a moist vanilla sponge cake, it´s filled with pastry cream, sliced bananas, chopped Daim candy, and whipped salted caramel frosting, it is so good!

This cake is so delicious, I hope you try it.

Sponge Cake with Daim and salted caramel frosting

Cake Layers;

  • 3 x 8 inch ( 20 cm) vanilla sponge cake, get the recipe here

Filling;

  • 1/2 recipe of pastry cream, get the recipe here
  • 3 daim candy bars ( chopped)
  • 1-2 bananas ( sliced)
  • 1 1/2  recipe Salted caramel frosting get the recipe here

Directions;

  • Start by making your 3 x 8 inch ) 20 cm) vanilla sponge cake, you can find the recipe and step by step instruction →here.
  • You need 1/2 recipe of the pastry cream, you can find the recipe →her.
  • Place the first cake layer  on a cake board ( make sure the cake board fits in your refrigerator)
  • Place dollops of the pastry cream on the first cake layer, Use a small offset palette knife to spread into an even layer.
  • Add 1 banana ( sliced) and 1 1/2 bar Daim candy ( chopped) ( the Daim candy bar is available at Ikea)
  • Whip up 1/2 the caramel frosting and place dollops of the whipped frosting on top. Use a small offset palette knife to spread into an even layer.
  •  Add the next layer ( the vanilla sponge cake) on top, press lightly to make sure it attaches and make sure the sides of the cakes are straight, take a look at the cake from above as this is the best way to see if the layers are lined up.
  •  Repeat this step with the next layer.
  • Add the final vanilla sponge cake layer on top, again take a look at the cake from above as this is the best way to see if the layers are lined up.
  • Cover the top and side of the cake with what is left of 1/2 the whipped frosting
  • I use a cake collar around the cake and I use an adjustable cake ring and then I add plastic wraps and a book on top of the cake before I place it into the fridge ( this is optional but I do it this way)
  • Refrigerate the cake for a few hours,  preferably overnight ( it will taste better if you leave the cake in the fridge overnight)
  • Next day; whip up the other 1/2 of the caramel frosting.
  • Remove the cake from the refrigerator, and frost the entire cake with the caramel frosting.
  • Slice and enjoy!

Have a wonderful day you all. Check back soon
