Almond-Caramel Devils Food Cake

I love cooking but I am not the best baker! I like using box mixes, they’re just so easy, but I like dressing them up a little.  To make this box Devil’s Food Cake better I melted 1 stick of butter in a sauce pan, added 1/4 C of whipping cream and 3/4 C of light brown sugar.  I split the mixture between 2   8″ greased baking pans and then sprinkled crushed almonds over the caramel mixture.  I prepared the box cake mix according to the directions and then poured the cake mix over the almond-caramel.  I baked them for 35 minutes at 350, removed them from the oven and let them cool on a rack.  I whipped the left over whipping cream I had with 1 tsp of vanilla and a little sugar. I spread some of the whipped cream inbetween to two layers and topped it with a little additonal. Everyone loved it!! Next time you make a cake, think about doing this!
