Preheat the oven to 350F. Beat eggs together with 1 cup of sugar, until it doubles in volume. By thirds, using a spatula, fold flour into the egg mixture. Be careful not to overmix the dough.
Spread the cake dough into a lined baking sheet, 10" X 15" is a perfect size. Bake for 12 minutes.
For the frosting, make sure the butter is completely softened. Combine butter with 13oz of dulce de leche in a mixing bowl, whisk until the mixture is very smooth.
Add in very cold heavy whipped cream, whisk at a high speed. Keep an eye on the cream so you don't overbeat it. Once you start seeing the fluffy tops, you can stop the beating.
Microwave the remaining 13 oz of dulce de leche, for about 30 seconds to soften it. Apply dulce de leche on the cake roll, followed by dulce de leche frosting. Roll it back up and apply the remaining frosting on the outside.
Decorate the cake as you wish. Using the crushed caramel candy or drizzling the top with some dulce the leche would also work well. I hope you get to try this recipe, it is truly amazing!
