Very Moist Spice cake

One night when my mother-in-law came home from work she asked me to make a cake for her boss 50th birthday and I was honored to do it. So without any hesitation, I said yes. I will make him a cake and it happened that I just bought a new football pan and I thought his cake with be in the shape of a football since most people here in Indiana is a fan of colts. My mom also mentioned to me that he loves cream cheese frosting so his  cake would be a spice cake with cream cheese frosting. After I baked the cake I tried to put  brown color on my cream cheese frosting but I didn't turned out good so I changed the plan right away to have colors of colts blue and white and it turns great. This recipe is so wonderful.
2 1/2 cups cake flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
4 tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground all spice
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1 cup whole milk
3 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
2 cups brown sugar

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease your 9-by-13 inch pan.Whisk dry ingredients and spice in a large bowl.
2. Mix milk, and vanilla extract in another bowl.
3. Beat butter and brown sugar together on slow then medium speed of your electric mixer until incorporated then add eggs one at a time.
4. Add 1/3 part of dry ingredients to the butter mixture alternately with the milk mixture. Do this again and again till you mix all your dry and milk mixture with the rest of the ingredients.
5. Bake until a cake tester or toothpick inserted and comes out clean about 40 minutes. Set a pan in a wire rack for 30 minutes, preferably an hour before removing it from the pan.

Enjoy and have fun baking!
