They say never judge a book by its cover right?

Well, today i learned that the hard way.

I made a sticky date cake adapted from http://www.davidlebovitz.com/2008/12/warm-sticky-toffee-pudding/ and it turned out beautifully Al7amduliAllah. I then tried to top it with some caramel and went off preparing some wet caramel. I waited for the caramel mixtures color to turn into a pale caramel shade and then cooled it and drizzled it on top of the cake with mixed feelings of triumph and anticipation. 

It was a disaster! I used wet caramel that only consisted of sugar and water, mostly used in sugar work. So the beautiful cake was then showered with a caramel mixture that turned so solid you couldn’t even cut the cake! 

I will attempt to do it again with the correct type of caramel hopefully!
