Just realized that the name of this cake is sooo long ^_^. Because this cake has banana, caramel, cream cheese and butter. With all these ingredients, sure it will not go wrong, a rich and buttery cake!
I especially love all the toppings !
I made two cakes the other day, so my daughter's friend can bring one home for her family.
