- 1x basic Victoria sponge cake, (sponges only)
- 700g golden icing sugar
- 100 unsalted butter, softened
- 200g Philadelphia cream cheese
- 200g caramel
- 1tsp vanilla extract
- 4 Balhsen Leibniz caramel biscuits, cut into shards with a sharp knife
- 3 caramel waffles, cut into shards with a sharp knife
- 2 Dime bars, cut into shards with a sharp knife
- Make your basic Victoria sponge cake - sponges only, don't make the filling.
- Sieve icing sugar into a large bowl and beat with the butter, cream cheese and caramel until smooth. Add the vanilla extract and beat again until soft and smooth.
- Spread almost a third of the buttercream on top of the base sponge, top with the other sponge and press down slightly. Cover the whole cake with a thin layer of the buttercream to catch the crumbs then cover again with the remaining buttercream until smooth and even. Now top with the pieces of biscuit, waffle and dime bar to create a crazy paving look.
