1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup vegetable or canola oil
2 tablespoons cocoa

combine wet and dry ingredients separately, then add wet to dry. bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.
(it's this recipe slightly modified.)
1/2 cup butter
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons soy milk
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tablespoon vanilla
a dash of salt
mix it together and spread on top! no cooking required! and yes, let the butter get to room temperature first if you know what's good for you.
(the recipe was taken from kittee's cooking website, but i can't find the actual link right now. just trust me on this one. it's the yummiest frosting i've ever had.
