These were pretty good, I found the lemon icing really overpowered the spice cake though. Next time I will make it without the lemon, or no icing at all.

These are delicious, fantastic, wonderful and addictive! Can you tell I loved them?? The spice cake layer was perfect and the lemon icing complimented it beautifully. They were popular with adults, teen and childs alike. A lovely fall treat that will become a regular around here! Thanks Bec!
