Pumpkin Cake

Pumpkin cake with stencil design


I love all the fun recipes in the fall, especially anything that uses pumpkin.  This pumpkin cake recipe uses canned pumpkin, but I substitute fresh pumpkin whenever I have it on hand! It is very easy to throw together and only takes about 20 minutes, plus baking time!

I enjoy playing with presentation, so this one was decorated with powdered sugar & some fall stencils.  You could also use a pumpkin shaped pan, orange frosting and use candy corns and black licorice to make the pumpkin's face.
