Hi, I´m going to bake this cake, but I don´t know what "mace" is, I think it´s a spice, but how does it looks?

Mace is a slightly unusual spice you can order online (we like Kalustyans -- check them out!) -- it's dark-colored and usually sold ground.

Hey there! You're right, mace is a spice. It grows around nutmeg, and has a similar flavor.

Tanks for fast anwser!. So can I substitute mace with nutmeg?
you sure can. and if you pick up some mace in the future, you can always make this cake again using it.
