Spice Cake with Maple Icing

This homemade spice cake is packed with warm spices and covered in a sweet maple icing. The perfect combination of spices, moist texture, and flavorful icing make this the best spice cake ever! And, it’s super easy- no mixer needed.

A spice cake is similar to carrot cake or pumpkin cake but it contains no carrots or pumpkin and it is heavier on the spices. It is the perfect cake for fall and winter because the flavors are warm and cozy.
