In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and spices. Set aside. In another bowl or stand mixer, cream together butter and brown sugar. Once light and fluffy, add molasses and mix well. Add egg and vanilla and mix. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix until combined. Make sure to scrape down sides of bowl between each step. Once smooth, divide dough in half and form discs. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Once chilled, roll dough out and cut into newt shapes using a cookie cutter or template. Place newts on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 350ºF for 7-10 minutes, or until lightly golden around the edges.

In a large bowl, mix vanilla cake with spices, icing and butterscotch until a thick dough forms. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Freezer for 15-12 minutes.
