This post is sponsored by Dixie Crystals in conjunction with a social media campaign through Sunday Supper LLC. All opinions are my own. You will love this Cinnamon Frosted Pumpkin Spice Layer Cake.It’s hard to believe, but Halloween is just around the corner. This week the Sunday Supper Tastemakers are partnering with Dixie Crystals to bring you some pretty fabulous Halloween recipes that will be perfect for kids and adults! We had so much fun making this Cinnamon Frosted Pumpkin Spice Layer Cake with Dixie Crystals sugar. The cake is a traditional pumpkin cake, made even better with plenty of spice and a wonderful moist crumb. The frosting is a pretty traditional recipe but made better with the addition of Cinnamon. The Cinnamon frosting holds the two layers together and gives this cake an amazing finish that promises a flavor combination that is both elegant and festive at the same time.
Dixie Crystals has many different types of sugar and for this Cinnamon Frosted Pumpkin Spice Layer Cake I used both Dixie Crystals granulated sugar for the cake and Dixie Crystals powdered sugar for the frosting. There is also Dixie Crystals Brown and Raw (Turbinado) sugar.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare two 9" cake pans by spraying with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, beat pumpkin puree, sugar, oil and vanilla on medium speed. Turn down to low and add eggs, one at a time, mixing thoroughly.
In another large bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice.
Combine both bowls together and transfer evenly to two 9" cake pans.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 18-24 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to sit for 5 minutes in pans.
Remove and allow to continue cool on baking racks. Do not frost cakes until completely cooled.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, butter, and Dixie Crystals powdered sugar until smooth; beat in vanilla and cinnamon. Add more cinnamon to taste.
Spread the icing on one layer and top with the other layer. Frost the outside of cake and decorate as desired.

I spend most Halloween’s on my couch waiting for Trick or Treaters to show up and enjoy handfuls of candy. We often invite another couple over for a fun adult dinner party, while my teens head out with friends. This cake is absolutely the perfect dessert to serve at any party, but I haven’t found a pumpkin loving adult who doesn’t literally love this cake. The best part is, it’s good for more than just Halloween and can be decorated accordingly.
