Chocolate Spice Cake? Why not? Add a few spices that blend well with the taste of chocolate, such as cinnamon and nutmeg, and get imaginative with the filling and frosting. How about cherry or raspberry jelly between the layers and caramel frosting with chopped pecans or walnuts added? That's pretty much a box of chocolates in a cake! I think it's perfect for the Holidays.
