Husband's Cake with a Cheese Fondant Frosting

In honor of father's day, I decided to make "Husband's Cake." I have never heard of, or made, a husband's cake although as I was mixing it, and while it was in the oven baking, the aroma reminded me of something I have had before but can't quite put my finger on. The cake has many spices that are similar to that of a pumpkin pie or pumpkin bread. It is covered in a Cheese Fondant Frosting. It looks so moist and delicious! Hurry in today and try some of this fabulous husband's cake. You won't be disappointed! 

The three components: 
1. Creamed Butter and Sugar
2. Dry Ingredients (flour and leavening agents) and Spices
3. Condensed Tomato Soup and Water 

Dry ingredients get sifted together and added to the 
creamed mixture alternately with the soup. 

A light and fluffy batter. 

Chopped Walnuts 

 Plumped raisins and chopped walnuts 
added to the creamy cake batter.

Fresh cakes... hot out of the oven! 

While the cake is cooling, mix the frosting together. 
Cream cheese, egg yolk, vanilla, salt and confectioners' sugar. 

Frost the cake and you're ready to enjoy this delicious creation!
