Step 4:

Grease the sides of the crockpot with vegetable oil and line the bottom with parchment paper. Pour the cake batter and spread it evenly. Place the lid back on and set the heat to low for about 1.5 to 2 hours depending on your crockpot. Refrain from removing the lid. After 2 hours, insert the toothpick in the center to check if it’s done. Allow the cake to cool in the crock pot for  30 minutes before you remove it.

Step 5:

Make the frosting. In a bowl, add soft butter and some powdered sugar. Mix using a hand mixer or stand mixer. Next, add vanilla and heavy cream. Mix again. Continue adding the powdered sugar in batches until you have a thick creamy frosting.

Step 6:

Spread the frosting on top of the pumpkin spice cake and drizzle some caramel on top. Slice then serve. Enjoy!
