  • Once done, remove the cake from the oven, let it sit on the counter for 5 minutes to cool. Then slowly unmould it from the cake pan on to a wire rack and let it cool completely.
  • For Caramel preparation: In a pan, place 1/2 cup of sugar and stir in 2 tablespoons of water. Turn the heat to medium.
  • Keep stirring it till all the crystals melt , keep cooking it n it's colour will change from light brown to darker as darker the sugar, the stronger flavour our caramel cake frosting will have.
  • Now add dry fruits to caramel, mix it n turn off the gas flame.
  • Place caramelized dryfruits over cake, n pour extra caramel around the cake.
