Caramel Apple Spice Cake

I am excited about all things Apple this month! I want to take advantage of all the lush bushels of apples piled high in the produce section! My boys love them too. I try to keep a bunch of small apples available for their little hands and mouth to snack on as much as they want. Although, I often find little teeth marks and half eaten apples in our apple basket. (Oh, Boy! Hehehehe)
