Moist and Decadent Spice Cake


This moist and decadent cake is one of the nicest I have ever tasted. Believe me, your family and friends will say “Where did you buy this cake?” They will be shocked, unless they know you’re an experienced baker or at least love to bake, that you made it from scratch. It is so easy to make, even if you don’t have the right spices in your rack. Inevitably, I always make this up for the Holidays, and it’s always a hit.

The one drawback to this wonderful cake is that it involves quite a few spices. If you don’t have them on hand, however, don’t despair as you can always improvise. In example, the recipe calls for allspice, which many people don’t have in their spice rack, but you can use a pumpkin spice or simply leave it out. The same applies to many of the spices and the outcome will be just about equally as good. The spice cake will be, soft, moist, and ever so decadent.

Once you have the cake made, apply the delicious buttercream frosting, which we show you how to make, and the outcome is totally out of this world.

As always, give it a try, and drop us a line to let us know what you think.
