A few recipe notes:

1. The crock pot used for this recipe was a 6 quart oval pot. You can use a larger pot or use the slow cooker function on your Instant Pot. But, your cooking time may be different.

2. If you can’t locate a spice cake mix, a regular yellow mix will also work.

3. Don’t forget to line your crock pot with parchment or crock pot liners. This will make clean up MUCH easier.

4. Once your cooking time is complete, remove the pot from your crock pot and let the cake cool for 10-15 minutes before removing the cake completely.

5. Your cream cheese and butter should be softened before making the frosting. This will give your a nice, smooth consistency.

6. Add a drizzle of caramel sauce before serving..it’s a great finishing touch!
