Rich Chocolate Cake with Salted Caramel Frosting

Rich Chocolate Cake with Salted Caramel FrostingThis cake is sweet. I am not a milk drinker, but this cake merits a tall glass. This is the final post from my autumn dinner party, I am already trying to figure out when I will be able to host another. I love having friends over for dinner (and wine!) and I wish I could do so more often. And now that there is a "secret" board option on Pinterest, my guests won't be spoiled as to what I am preparing for our dinner.  The cake is Hershey's Perfectly Chocolate cake and the frosting is from Sally's Baking Addiction

My family loves chocolate cake, and I bet the addition of salted caramel frosting put it over the top in the taste department.
