Applesauce Cake with Caramel Apples and Bacon

Applesauce Cake with Caramel Apples & Bacon
Practicing for my advanced baking practical exam. It’s an applesauce cake that’s baked with a layer of caramelized apples (like a tarte tatin), a layer of bacon on top of that, and then another layer of applesauce cake to top it off. I iced it with chocolate buttercream, and it’s a little sweet.

Next time I’m going to chop the bacon to make the cake easier to slice, and add some orange to cut some of the sweetness. I might sprinkle some sea salt on top as a garnish, as a little twist on the idea of sprinkling powdered sugar on desserts.
