Caramel Apple Poke Cake {recipe}

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Huggies®. As always, all opinions are my own.

Hello! How are you? As you know I have 5 kiddos, & my kiddos love to get in the kitchen & cook. This is also known as time to make a big mess in the kitchen, too! September 13th was Kids Take Over the Kitchen Day, so we decided to celebrate! Yay! My youngest daughter loves to bake. She was excited to make a cake all by herself. Annnnd since it is fall she decided to combine two favorite flavors ~ caramel & apple. Keep reading as I share her Caramel Apple Poke Cake recipe. Yum! Let’s get started! 🙂

Caramel can be sticky to work with. Use Huggies® Wipes to clean off any excess caramel from your hands and around the plate prior to serving.
