    In chilled large bowl, beat whipping cream and icing sugar with electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Fold in ginger. Cut cake horizontally in half to make 2 even layers. Spread half of the filling on bottom layer; replace top of cake. Spread remaining filling on top of cake. Sprinkle with additional pumpkin pie spice if desired.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Tip: Don't have crystallized ginger? Mix 1 teaspoon ground ginger with the powdered sugar when making the filling.
  • Tip 2
    Tip: A serrated or electric knife will help you cleanly cut the cake into 2 layers, as well as slice the cake for serving.
  • Tip 3
    Tip: Save a step or two by just cutting the cake into slices and topping with the filling or topping with frozen (thawed) whipped topping and garnishing with the chopped crystallized ginger.
