Secret Recipe

Ok, Coila has asked for the recipe for my much sought after, totally amazing, not-a-calorie-in-it spice cake. So, here you go!

Spice Cake

1 c. sour cream
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. baking soda

Sift dry ingredients together 3 times. Beat eggs well and add to sour cream. Mix together and beat well. Bake 20-25 minutes at 375 degrees.

Cream Cheese Icing

1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese (the small one)

1 stick of butter (1 cup or half a 250 g block)
3 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar (about 1 pound)

If you're going to pipe the icing, make sure you sift the sugar to get rid of all the lumps. Add the sugar slowly so you don't get huge puffs of sugar billowing up from the bowl. If you add the full amount of sugar, it will be quite thick. If you want it thinner either add less sugar, or add a little milk to thin it out.
