Oatmeal Spice Cake

Tonight we are going to meet with our monthly fellowship group.  We do a pitch in dinner and tonight I am taking an Oatmeal Spice Cake with Caramel Sauce Topping and a Chocolate Fudge Sheet Cake.  I am making a special variation of my  Oatmeal cake and mixed in apples and cranberries.... yummy!

It is an easy cake to mix up and always gets rave reviews.  Here is the recipe if you ever want to whip one up!
