You'll find this cake is good with ice cream, but that it's also delicate enough to serve small pieces for a tea. My husband served in the military, and we spent 22 years moving around before "retiring" here. He's been a high school teacher, and I've been a wedding consultant. Now we're retiring again so we can have more time to spend with our two daughters and four granddaughters in the Midwest. "Grandpa" is looking forward to some good fishing!

This tender spice cake has flecks of sweet potatoes and is so moist that you can dig into it without any frosting. I, however, like a little dollop of sweetness. So, I add a bit of frosting directly on each warm slice. The frosting melts into the cake and it is fabulous. —Emma Chapman, Springfield, Missouri
