"This classic Gingerbread Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting is the perfect holiday dessert. It will remind you the time-honored gingerbread cake that grandma made. This delectable cake is bursting with flavor from molasses, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg. Elegant enough for your holiday meal yet simple enough for your office potluck. Are the holidays keeping you super busy? It seems like right after Halloween things really begin to ramp up. It really feels like run Rudolph run from then until after the New Year. Are you invited to several holiday parties or have you been asked to bring something for a potluck? This scrumptious Gingerbread Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting is quick to come together, delicious and pretty with its silky cream cheese frosting. In a hurry? Bake the cake one day and frost it the following day."
