Apple Walnut Caramel Cake

This Apple Walnut Caramel Cake is a mouthwatering rich dessert, full of flavor and texture, perfect for any time of the year. Soft and moist apple cake layers topped with a crunchy caramelized walnuts, filled with dulce de leche buttercream and topped with salted caramel sauce. The caramel walnut shards I used to decorate the cake not only look amazing but bring an amazing crispy touch too.
