This is the best spice cake I have ever tasted! It was everything a spice cake should be and more. It was moist, tender, sweet, and had the perfect amount of spice. The maple cream cheese frosting is wonderful too and goes nice with the cake.

I did not make the cake but did use the frosting recipe. It's very good but watch out for the amount of confectioners sugar that you use. I used a half a cup less than the recipe stated and it was still just a tad too sweet for me. Start testing it after two cups to get the sweetness level you prefer.

I must have done something wrong - my cake turned out very dry. The icing was outstanding, however!
