Undeniably, one of the most aromatic seasons we have. The cafes filled with the scent of cinnamon, cloves, maple syrup, and pumpkin spices. Couples walk hand in hand in their fall sweaters and knitted scarves, inhaling the dewy petrichor in the air. It’s a time for the outdoors but also an excellent time to take comfort inside your home.

Or you can grab a blanket, the sweet, and rewatch The Handmaid’s Tale for the hundredth time.

Chocolate Spice Layer Cake w/ Ginger Buttercream
Three layers that capture the taste of Autumn? Yes, count me in!
I’ve been following Laura at Fork Knife Swoon for just a few months now, and I am never disappointed. If a moist double chocolate cake and a gingerbread house had a baby, this would be it. It is definitely a very peculiar taste and not for those too weak to try new things because this chocolate cake is spicy.

Now, it’s not so spicy that you need a cold cup of milk, but enough that you know it’s distinctive. Whenever a friend asks for something new, this is the recipe I recommend.
Cranberry Layer Cake
The best thing about Taste of Home is…everything. Most of their recipes are made for scratch and require very little to create something remarkably delicious. Cranberries are known to be used during Thanksgiving dinners, and not much in desserts. There are hundreds of sweets out there with cranberries being the critical component.
