A question about a recipe: Faulknerian Family Spice Cake, with Caramel Icing

I have a question about the recipe "Faulknerian Family Spice Cake, with Caramel Icing" from ENunn.
This is probably a stupid question but I'm not very skilled/knowledgeable in the kitchen and I ALWAYS have this question....the recipe calls for butter - unsalted or salted? does it matter? thank you!!

In baking and in cooking in general opt for unsalted butter. Salt is merely a preservative when added to butter. Unsalted butter will be fresher and have a better taste. Looks like a great recipe!

While I agree that you would want to use unsalted butter for baking this cake, please know that it is not inherently fresher. Any butter can be old.
