Ok it wasn't the best cake, but it was very good! First off, I want to say that this was very tasty and smelled like nutmeg and cinnamon. The frosting was just perfect. I didn't have almost any left over after I was done. I did make a 9 inch cake though, not 8, and only 1 layer (of course it took longer to cook). Many tried it and loved it. I am deffinately making it again!
