Step 8: Remove from the oven and allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Then remove from the pans and cool completely.
Step 9: Sandwich the two cake layers using half of the icing. Use the other half of the icing to ice the top of the cake. Step 10: Decorate with caramel treat and mint leaves (optional).
