Chocolate cake with Caramel Buttercream and Roast almond Filling

Chocolate Cake Caramel Buttercream

We all get so comfortable with the things we know that we stop trying new stuff and taking risks. Like, I haven’t ventured into any new recipe for so long :(. But on insistence of a friend, I finally tried my hands at making Caramel. I have read the process several times earlier, but the technicality, the need of a candy thermometer and the bubbling hot cream technique are enough to scare anyone. I also read the condensed milk caramel, also called Dulce de leche. This did interest me but I didn’t have condensed milk at hand. So I started with what I had, […]
