Gingerbread Cake (Scratch) with Spiced Cream Cheese Frosting

Before we made this recipe, I had always associated gingerbread with cookies or a holiday treat, but not an actual spiced gingerbread layer cake. I didn’t realize what I was missing!

What I love about this dessert is that it incorporates all of the flavors of gingerbread into fluffy cake layers. The Spiced Cream Cheese filling and frosting pair beautifully with the gingerbread cake layers. It’s a match made in heaven.
