The countdown to Thanksgiving is on, my friends, and what better way to kick off holiday baking than with a pumpkin layer cake? I’m beyond excited about this cake and this post for so many reasons!
First, we’re talking about cake and as far as I’m concerned cake is always cause for celebration, especially when it’s this good! Second, I’ve been itching to break out the pumpkin recipes and what’s better than a layer cake? Third, the cinnamon and spice cream cheese frosting involved in this situation is everything! And finally, this is the next recipe in the Pure Holiday series, which means there’s a fantastic cookware and bakeware giveaway from my friends at Farberware!
So I’ve been dying to share this cake with you because it’s one of those classic cakes you will always go back to. It’s easy to make, packed with warm Fall flavors and one that should definitely be involved in your Thanksgiving celebrations and your weekend celebrations, and your every day celebrations! The cinnamon and spice cream cheese frosting really puts it over the top and is the kind of frosting where you’ll want to grab a spoon and call it a day…
The toasted pecans are definitely the icing on the cake here! Sorry, I couldn’t help myself with that one. They lend that crunch factor and also balance out the sweet factor in the frosting. It’s one of those situations where you don’t think they’re going to make a big difference until you take a bite. Everything works together beautifully and it’s so, so good!
Like cake for breakfast good!
The toasted pecans pressed around the cake are also one of my biggest tips and tricks for decorating. It doesn’t matter what the frosting looks like around the cake because you pop those pecan pieces on and ta-da, you have a gorgeous layer cake worthy of any holiday table!
