      These were very yummy! I left out the sugar, because I didn't think between the cake mix and the applesauce it was really needed. The maple cinnamon icing was amazing and complemented the cake perfectly. I was uncertain about adding the extra spices to the batter, since I was using a spice cake mix, but I did, and it wasn't detrimental, though I wouldn't say it's entirely essential either.
