    QueenJellyBean's Note:

    This is a Turtle Cake recipe that makes the cake "from scratch" instead of using a box mix. It's a little time consuming but it is well worth it!

      I love to make things from scratch so I tried this, glad I did. I turned out like a giant candy bar! I found the recipe a little hard to read, I almost added the sugar with the dry ingredients. I also had to bake the bottom layer of the cake for 5 min longer. The bottom layer was not be finished baking when I put the caramel on top, but this didn't seem to be a problem. Great Recipe! Thanks!
