Salted Caramel Apple Snickers Cake

It’s the week after Thanksgiving and the fall d├ęcor is tucked away for another year. We hosted our family for dinner, and I am thankful I have sisters and nieces that bring side dishes and pies.

My sisters and mom were born in the month  of November so we have been celebrating their birthdays on Thanksgiving for many years. When I saw the recipe for Salted Caramel Apple Snickers Cake on Facebook back in October, I decided to go for it. I baked the three cake layers ahead of time and froze them. I was able to make the peanut butter frosting and the caramel Tuesday evening. On Thanksgiving eve, all I had to do was assemble the cake and drizzle with the chocolate. It's a little time consuming if you do it all the same day. 

You will find the recipe with beautiful photos at Half Baked Harvest.
 A harvest of garland, squash, pine cones, fruit, candles, and a ceramic turkey provided an easy centerpiece for the table. I also set up a breakfast tray in the sun room and decorated the oak secretary that we have in the dining room. In the last photo, I took it before I actually finished the table thus the goblets are flipped upside down so they don't get dusty ;o)

Last evening, Joe and I began decking the halls and plunged into the Christmas season. I wish you the very best December. I hope you'll visit again soon to see what my Traveling Tote and the ladies have been up to.

I'm joining two wonderful hostesses this week. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday, and Michael Lee at Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday.

Hello, I'm Debbie.I enjoy hiking, kayaking, cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the Adirondack Mountains (thus Mountain Breaths). I live in Upstate NY with my supportive husband and have three precious sons..


  1. Everything looks so the cake!

  2. For some reason..maybe the fog..and mist..our internet connection is pouting..and it rarely does..tried commenting..will try again:)
    Bravo! Super celebratory and I love being inspired by a recipe..I also like starting ahead like you~

  3. I have been drooling over this cake ever since I saw it on HBH, yours turned out incredible Debbie! Happy Holidays and I'm looking forward to the next traveling tote adventure!

  4. I loved seeing your Thanksgiving decor, my friend! Your table, vignettes and home looked so welcoming and cozy. The birthday cake looks AMAZING! What lucky sisters that received that lovely cake on Thanksgiving day. I know your angel mom was celebrating with you all from up in heaven.
    I'll bet you and Joe have the decorating all finished! I'm enjoying mine, especially my tree in my bedroom. xo

  5. Beautiful post! You are very talented. I enjoyed each and every photo. Have a wonderful Holiday season.

  6. Apple and salted caramel is the aroma for starting Christmas holidays.

  7. Debbie, I'm late! Someone how I missed that you had posted this. Your Thanksgiving table and vignettes in your home are heart warming. Like you, all of our autumn decor is now packed away, and Christmas things are taking their place. We are definitely moving into the next holiday.
    This cake looks delicious and pretty!

  8. I pinned that recipe when I first saw it on HBH. Since we always do apple and pumpkins pies on Thanksgiving I haven't had a chance to try it yet but it is a beautiful presentation. The puddle of caramel and dripping chocolate is calling my name. All of Christmas is up and most of the shopping is done but not quite. I'm waiting to come up for a mountain breath :)

  9. That certainly is a terrific cake to celebrate all the birthdays. Your decor was perfect for the holiday…love how the branches over the archway go perfectly with your wallpaper.


I'm so happy you decided to stop by my blog. Please leave a comment as I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you!
