Back to pumpkin pie spice. I've decided that when you put the Big 3 spices (cinnamon, cloves, ginger), all you wind up with is a rather sharp, scratchy taste which I dislike. So now I just pick one of the three and use it.

When I was a kid, spice cake was a popular dessert, and I never liked it. Now I know that that was because of that scratchy effect I mentioned. A couple years ago I made spice cake using only ginger, and I liked it.
