Sugar & Spice Cake

My boyfriend requested a Sugar & Spice Cake for his birthday this year. I have made this cake in the past for him and he just loved it! It's a tradition in the Houston Fire Department to bring cake for any special occasions for everyone at the station to enjoy. So this is what he wanted to bring. It's super easy and since it is based on a box mix, it is all thrown together very quickly!

This is a recipe my aunt passed on to me from Southern Living Magazine. So if you are interested go to Southern Living.

Just combine all the ingredients and mix!

Here is what the batter looks like...I might have licked the spatula once I was done :)

The recipe calls for 3 8 inch pans but I used 2 9 inch pans and it was fine!

All baked up! I used the awesome little bake even strips with these cakes! Look how even :)

Starting to ice the cake...

And finally, the finished product! I sprinkled a little edible glitter on top.

Everyone should definitely try this cake! The cake box came home empty...not even a crumb left :)

  1. This looks absolutely delicious!!!

  2. That cake looks delicious! I'm actually making a birthday cake for my boyfriend tonight.

  3. Looks pretty. I love recipes that add sour cream to cake batter. It's such a good addition.

  4. Yummy!!! This look very similar to a Pumkin Spice Cake I made over the weekend! I used Pumpkin Spice instead of apple spice. I am going to put this in my "too bake" folder.

    I will be posting my Pumpkin Spice Cake with Honey frosting on the 31st....


  5. Yummy - this looks wonderful. I love spice cake - I'll be making this one soon!

  6. What a compliment- not even a crumb. I love when that happens.

    Happy birthday to your boyfriend.
