It’s hard to believe, but Halloween is just around the corner. This week we’ve partnered 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.

In the meantime, let’s talk about this awesome cake. 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.
