Here is the recipe if you would like to try it. I did change the icing by making an Italian meringue buttercream and when it was combined and whipped I add 1/2 cup of the homemade caramel sauce and beat to combine.

Thanks friends, it really is a nice cake. Lighter and less spicy than a regular spice cake. And I changed the cinnamon icing to caramel because cinnamon and caramel are favorite flavors of his combined. By the way, I should add I allowed the carmel sauce to cool before adding it to the whipped Italian meringue. I also searched but couldn’t find a new flavor of Lindt truffles called Snickerdoodles. Those would have made a nice touch but think they must have sold out during the holidays, so I just used their regular white chocolate truffles.

Thank you everyone! If you can’t taste through the computer screen you should at least be able to smell the aroma. My kitchen smells so good.
