Autumn Spice Cake
September 10, 2011 by The Christmas Owl
During my recent trip to Yankee Candle to pick up some owl merch
, I came across a new scent called ‘Spice Cake’. I absolutely love the food scented candles, and their cake ones always seem to be my favorites. The image on the candle looked so enticing that it inspired me to search for the best spice cake recipe I could find on the net and give it a shot. Whether you prefer baking or simply lighting a wick; both options will be sure fill your home with the wonderful smell of Fall baking. One choice has decidedly less calories though!
