This is really good! I love spice cake, but the recipe I have is kind of dry, but the flavor is amazing. So I found a couple of recipes online that I modified to get the flavors I wanted. The original recipe suggests an orange frosting, so the addition of orange extract to the whipped topping seemed like a really good idea. And it was! I initially tried to use 1 tsp, but ran out, and the 2nd time I estimated that it was ~1/2 tsp, so that’s what I used. I think it could use a little more orange flavor, but not a lot, so I have 3/4 tsp in the recipe, which is what I’ll be testing next time.
I was kind of hoping that the cake would be just a bit more moist, but everyone love it, so I’ll leave it for now, don’t want it to moist or it will disintegrate! A work in progress. A very tasty work in progress! I hope you enjoy as much as my family has!
