EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Don’t feel like keeping track of four different spices? You can replace the cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and cloves with 2 teaspoons of apple pie spice or pumpkin pie spice.

Add a decorative and spicy touch to this pretty-as-a-picture cake when you sprinkle the smooth glaze with a bit of nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice or cloves.
