Those tiny speckles thing came from the vanila beans.

The Rules was very easy, as long as you make both "Caramel Cake" and the "Caramelized Butter Frosting" you are done.
As for the challenge, I didn't really have any major issues with the cake, nor did I have with the caramel, or the caramel butter frosting. Though the recipe seems pretty long, it was actually very easy to make. So, no major complained here!
My caramel was beautifully dark-amber color,
resulting in beautifully golden color in both of my cake and my frosting.
The result was pretty moist, and quite a dense cake (It's like pound cake type), which was not the type of the cake that, I or my family would enjoy. We shared a very small slice of this dense cake to taste, again, it was just not our type of cake. Well, at least we've tried it!
I guess it's a matter of your own taste, nothing to do with the cake itself. I know a lot of you might swear, it was taste heavenly.
