So, I don't have a picture of just the cake. I forgot. But I do have this picture with the cutest niece in the world and the cake. :) I found this recipe online awhile ago and decided this would be a good, easy birthday cake for my favorite 13 year old.
1 box cake mix - I used double chocolate
1 1/3 cups water
1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
3 large eggs
8 ounces caramel topping
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
1 cup crushed candy (I used Health bar topping)
1 tub whipped frosting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Lightly spray a 13 x 9 pan with cooking spray.
Mix cake mix, water, oil and eggs with a mixer or a wooden spoon until well blended.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing out the top. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 35-38 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched.
While the cake is baking, prepare the topping. Place the caramel topping and the condensed milk in a bowl and stir till combined.
Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack. Immediately poke holes in the cake with a straw.
Pour the topping mixture over the warm cake so it can seep in the holes. Measure out half the crushed candy and sprinkle over cake.
Allow cake to cool in the fridge for about 20 minutes. Then frost and top with more candy.
Store this cake covered with wax paper in the fridge for up to 1 week.
