Now when I saw the orange glaze, i knew i had to have cardamom in this recipe! I cut the cinnamon down to 1/4 tsp, nixed the nutmeg, and added 1 1/4 tsp ground cardamom (next time, I think I will add even more). I went with the cake flour suggestion as well as reducing the sugar to 1 1/4 cup (this is only if you don't enjoy really sweet cakes; i prefer enjoying the flavors of the spices and sweet potato).I also reduced just two tablespoons of confectioners sugar down with the orange zest and juice on the stove, and using a mixture of water, lemon juice and cornstarch to thicken it up to glaze consistency; it gives it a really nice tart flavor that compliments the cake very well.
