Amazing World of Gumball Chocolate Caramel Drip Cake

This was for my niece's birthday today. She loves Gumball (it took 4 hrs to make out of fondant!) and she asked for a chocolate drip cake. She was pretty darn happy with it. 😍 I used Annabel Langbein's Ultimate Chocolate Cake recipe; my go to recipe as it makes 2 cakes at a time and tastes deliciously moist. I made a chocolate ganache and caramel filling, ganache around the edges and caramel on top. I used the Barker's Dulche de Leche to drip down the top after chilling the cake for 20 mins. I had to warm the caramel first to soften it and not all that happy with the drip result, but it tasted yum.

Lemon Cake with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

You can't beat a lemon cake. I have a couple of good recipes, with and without yoghurt. Thought I'd try doing a "naked" cake for a friend's recent birthday. Not sure why they call it naked, I'd say "semi naked"! Anyway, threw some flowers on the top and it was well received. I used lemon curd between the layers too.
