Need help formulating my Thanksgiving dessert

sgogo | Oct 7, 2010 01:24 PM

I'm making dessert for our Thanksgiving dinner this weekend (Canadian version), and I'm in need of a little assistance. Here goes:
I made this cake last year, and it was really great.
I'd make it again, except I really want to try making salted caramel sauce, and include this as part of the dessert. Is there a way I can combine a pumpkin spice cake, cream cheese frosting and salted caramel sauce? For instance, frosting the layers with caramel, then finishing with cream cheese? Mixing caramel into the cream cheese? Drizzle it on top of the finished cake? Would you replace the orange flavouring with something else, or would it go with caramel? Or should I just serve the regular cake with a scoop of ice cream with caramel on top?
I'm not afraid of making up my own recipes, but it's a one-shot thing and I'd appreciate your input!
