I spent all day in the kitchen Saturday baking and cooking. I whisked, patted, frosted, chopped, and baked my little heart out until finally at 8 o’clock at night I sat down to enjoy the fruits of my labor.
One of my creations was this pumpkin cake. I made twelve cupcakes and 3 mini-loaves smothered with a rich cinnamon buttercream frosting. We eat with our eyes first, right? That’s why I was not entirely happy with the way my frosting turned out. I filled a pastry bag without realizing it had a huge hole in the seam causing all my frosting to squirt out in a giant blob. The only mishap of my long day. In the end it didn’t matter.
The pumpkin cake was scrumptious, dense, moist and sweetly spiced. Just the way a pumpkin cake was meant to be.
