Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°. In large bowl, combine cake mix, pumpkin, eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Mix with electric mixer on low until combined, then on medium for about 2 minutes. Pour batter into two well greased 8″ or 9″ round cake pans. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until pick comes out clean when inserted in center. Cool in pans for 5-10 minutes, then cool cakes on wire rack completely.

Maple Buttercream:
Whip butter, powdered sugar, maple syrup, and milk until fluffy. Add less milk or more milk to make desired spreading consistency. Spread frosting between layers and over sides and top of cake. There is enough frosting to slice each cake layer in half to make four layers with frosting in between each layer.
