Ingredients
  1. 2 cups sugar
  2. 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  3. 4 large eggs
  4. 1 (21-ounce) can mashed sweet potato
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  6. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  7. 1 tablespoon baking powder
  8. 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
  9. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  10. 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  11. 1⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger
  12. Cream Cheese Frosting (recipe follows)
  13. Garnish: toffee bits
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Spray 
2 (8-inch) cake pans with baking spray with flour. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat sugar and butter at low speed with a mixer until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in sweet potato and vanilla.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, allspice, and ginger; add to sweet potato mixture, stirring just until combined. Divide batter between prepared pans, smoothing tops with an offset spatula.
  3. Bake until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean, approximately 30 minutes. Let cool in pans 10 minutes. Remove from pans, and let cool completely on wire racks.
  4. Spread Cream Cheese Frosting between layers and on top and sides of cake. Cover and refrigerate up to 
2 days. Garnish with toffee just before serving.
