Since I am originally from Canada, I am a big FAN of Canada Dry®.

Sipping this ginger ale just reminds me of HOME and makes me so HAPPY inside

I have wanted to share a ginger ale cake recipe on my blog for a while now but it’s taken me about a year to PERFECT this recipe…Sheesh! :S

The cakes were either too dense…

Or too soft…

Or too sweet…

Or they would sink in the center…

But this ginger ale cake recipe is now PERFECT! 😀

It’s soft but firm and and filled with a creamy frosting that’s to die for!

Most ginger cakes I have tried have a very subtle ginger taste that I am NOT too fond of.

I wanted this cake to really show off the STRONG and BOLD ginger flavor.

So, I used ginger ale and freshly ground ginger together to really ENHANCE the flavor.

When my official taste-tester aka my hubby first TASTED this cake, he said: “If a spiced cake was to marry a ginger cake, this cake would be their baby!” Hahahaha

That’s so TRUE! 😀

Honestly, if you are looking to make a cake for Christmas or even Thanksgiving, I highly URGE you to try out this recipe!

This cake’s spicy flavors of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg makes it perfect for the holiday season… Don’t you agree?

By the way, I used TWO types of ginger ales to make this cake and frosting: Regular Canada Dry® and Canada Dry TEN®.  I picked up both varieties on a recent shopping trip to Target.

If you are watching your calorie intake, you can just use Canada Dry TEN® which only has 10 calories!

Yes… just TEN calories!

How COOL is that?! 😀
