    This was a great cake. 5 out of 6 Easy to make, looks good and delicious. Guest said it was like a pumpkin cheese cake. Had some trouble finding a spice cake mix. only Safeway carried it in my community. Just make sure the layers are fully cooled before assembling.

    Excellent, very moist . spice cake mixes don't seem to be available so much any more so I used the Betty Crocker basic carrot cake mix as it has similar spices in it and it worked very well. got many compliments at Thanksgiving pot luck
