(And, if you don’t want to go through the hassle of drying and roasting them, you can always just buy pumpkin seeds.)

Salted Caramel Six-Layer Chocolate Cake

If you don’t own a candy thermometer, this cake offers a good excuse to buy one. It sounds a little nitpicky, but the caramel should reach exactly 238 degrees.

Precision will also pay off with the chocolate frosting: It achieves its ideal spreading texture after standing for 30 minutes.
