My friend has my pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting at a girl's night at my house and declared it "the best cake I've ever had." I was flattered and pleased. I love when people appreciate a good cake. For Christmas, she ordered a pumpkin cake for her family get together.
I love the sides in the swirly rosettes piped all the way around the cake.
The top is a smudged design that reminded me of snow. Which was fitting because we ended up getting snow the evening of Christmas.
This particular pumpkin cake is moist, super flavorful, and light. It goes great with the cream cheese icing.
