This cake is a gorgeous change from chocolate fudge cake but tastes just as good. It goes down a storm at my work. I came up with the recipe from starting to make clotted cream fudge and caramel toppers for my vanilla cupcakes and once I discovered that using brown sugar or golden caster you added a caramel flavour to your cake and hey presto the caramel and clotted cream fudge cake was born!
If you are an expert at piping roses put them on the sides too, if not add a ribbon around the cake (I used a gold one to match in with the colour of the cake, but you could make it pink for a lady or blue for a boy). I get my ribbon from Boyes stores, they always have a basket of "end of rolls" ribbons for sale at between 25p or 40p each and they are perfect for cakes, I've got every colour covered, they also look great tied around cupcake boxes.
You can use golden caster sugar (Whitworths® is the best) or any soft light brown sugar.
For the clotted cream fudge pieces, Thorntons® is the best and you can buy a bag for a £1 in Poundland shops or use Marks and Spencer's clotted cream fudge. Don't buy the small fudge bags for baking from supermarkets, they don't taste good.
