      We really enjoyed this not overly sweet cake CJAY. The spice cake was perfect. The spices were just right, perfect ratio. I ground all my spices fresh for a subtle warm tasting cake. The cake rose beautifully, had a nice crumb and was the perfect base for the tasty meringue frosting. Loved the frosting it was crunchy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside. I've never made meringue with brown sugar before, it is soooo good. The pecans added a lovely taste and textural component to the cake. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely treat, which I will make again and again. Made for the Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - Mexico.
