Pumpkin Spice Layer Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

Calling all my Pumpkin Spice Loving Peeps! 🥳

I’ve made you a cake to celebrate the beginning of Fall. Yes, a whole cake! As if anything less would do. 

That’s not true; my Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes would totally do the season justice! 

Somehow layers just make it feel extra special! I also think I’ve outdone myself with this cake. It is so moist and ridiculously easy to make. 

A slice of fall!

Substitutions in your Pumpkin Spice Layer Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting: 

  • Canola Oil: feel free to use a flavorless oil of your choice. You can use coconut but it will impart a flavor on the cake. 
  • 3 Layers: You can absolutely divide this batter between three layers and make a fabulous three layer cake instead! 
  • Spices: I added a little flare to the BEST Cream Cheese Buttercream recipe by adding ground cinnamon, but you could use plain or go crazy with pumpkin pie spice or even a dash of maple extract.
A slice of fall cake!
