I made a Twix Cake and here are the recipes and tools you need to make it too.
Vanilla Pound Cake 1/2 of the recipe
Marshmallow Fondant 1 batch
Caramel Buttercream : Swiss Buttercream 1 batch, beat in Thick Caramel(you can half the recipe) - 1/2 to 1 cup
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
Bring to boil, boil for 4 minutes, remove from the heat, cool, add 1tsp vanilla extract and few drops of caramel flavor(optional)
2 cup milk chocolate chips
1cup heavy cream
Heat cream until almost boiling, you'll see small bubbles forming around the edges Pour hot cream over chocolate. Cover bowl with a kitchen towel/or paper towel and a lid or a large plate. Let sit for 3 minutes. Then whisk until smooth, let cool to desired consistency. Can be made ahead a slightly heated in the microwave.
