Frosted Gingerbread Spice Cake

The holiday season is once again upon us, and with that are all the favorite flavors that just go hand in hand with ‘decking the halls’. Gingerbread is one of the flavors that are most popular at our house.

During November and December, from cookies to lattes and even milkshakes. We love the flavor in baked goods and beverages…bring it on!!!

I found a cake recipe while browsing the internet and knew that I had to give it a whirl this holiday season. Cream cheese frosting sounded like the perfect compliment to gingerbread and I got to baking.
