SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS
CAKE MIX: While it would not taste quite the same as the spice cake mix, if you prefer to use a carrot cake mix or gingerbread box of cake mix, it would give you similar spiced flavors.
PUMPKIN PIE SPICE: If you are using a boxed cake mix that is different from the spiced cake mix the recipe calls for, you could add a dash of your own pumpkin pie spice.
FROSTING: If you want to add a little something extra to these muffins. You could top them with a little cream cheese frosting, either store-bought or homemade.
