Dulce de Leche is one of the flavors that I mostly remember from my home country Venezuela. It is a rich version of an American Caramel. Every South American country has it's own version of it, and they are all DELICIOUS.
Dulce de Leche is very rich and has not enough body to make a thick cake filling. We love to pair Dulce de Leche with thin layers of Almond Cake...our own take on a Smith Island cake...South American style:)
We hope you enjoy the look of this cake as much as we do!...give Dulce de Leche a try, and you will be hooked for life!
