Although Mother Nature may still be confused, we're certain that it's officially the season of crisp red apples, warm spices and changing leaves. Take advantage of early apples to make this gorgeous baked take on classic caramel apples.  Besides embodying all of the colors of fall, this Caramel Apple Cake with Salted Caramel Buttercream hits on the flavor, too, combining applesauce, cinnamon, brown sugar and caramel. For a sweet, surprising finish, top the cake with homemade caramel apples!
