If you are the kind of person who can eat gingerbread any time of the year, you will love this gingerbread cake recipe. From Courtney of food blog Fork to Belly, the layered dessert is especially wintery. Dense in texture, the solid cake has frosting layers made out of cream cheese frosting containing a bit of gingerbread spice mix for added flavor.

The gingerbread cake contains delightfully autumnal ingredients like cinnamon, ginger, ground cardamom and cloves as well as orange peel, in the bake batter. For added flair and plating points, you can decorate your dish with cranberries, pine cones and fake evergreen plant life.

This Call Me Cupcake-adapted recipe is perfect for a Christmas party or similar holiday-themed gathering.
