Wondering if anyone has a recipe (or ideas) for converting a Yellow Box Mix to a Gingerbread flavored cake?

Any and all ideas/recipes would be greatly appreciated!

Also, what other 'flavor' screams Christmas that can be used in a box mix?

Thanks in advance!

2 boxes white cake mix
2 c flour
2 tsp ginger
½ tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp cloves
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c white sugar
1/2 c molasses
1/4 t baking soda
1 pkg vanilla pudding (considered butterscotch, but figured I'd try that next time cheesecake pudding mix
1-1/2 t salt
2 c sour cream
6 eggs
1-1/3 cup Gingerbread creamer (though if all you've got is cinnamon bun creamer or something along those lines, I don't think you'd miss it)
1-1/3 cup water
1/4 c oil
2 t vanilla extract
2 t butter flavoring (or 1 dram LoRann butter)

Found this recipe for Gingerbread cake from Macsmom's gourmet WASC list. It uses white cake mix though.

Would that be liquid or powdered creamer?
