In keeping with the season it was agreed that one cake should be fallish in nature. We debated on a carrot cake, but there are sooooo may variations and people have pretty distinctive opinions so we opted for a spice cake instead. And I could not be happier with the results! I think you’ll agree, it’s mouthwatering!
Conveniently Matt & I had a trip to Field Stone Orchard planned. And we came home with half a bushel of apples and a snazzy new apple peeler, corer and slicer that needed to be put to good use. There might have been apple cider slushies involved too…
I started with an Apple Spice Cake recipe from Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook, which included homemade applesauce, and topped it off with a Brown Sugar Cream Cheese frosting found on Smitten Kitchen. Yep, it was heavenly and melted it your mouth.
I simply cannot wait to eat all of this!!!!!
mmm, yeah, i need it now!
I’m not going to lie, this one was AMAZING. The frosting alone almost sent me into a flavor comma. It’s going to be good dessert eats at the wedding.
Yum! Bring this one home!
That could probably arranged!
It was lovely to meet you at the wedding on Saturday. I wish I had tried all of the cakes! But the mocha was fabulous!
