The Great Pumpkin Cake

This idea was initiated by our cousin Nancy who found the recipe and directions HERE. The cream cheese icing recipe on that site is easy and yummy. Nancy has decorated cakes for a living; however, I really think that this cake and decorating could be done easily enough by those of us who haven't decorated cakes professionally. Mine is shown below.

Frosting a bundt cake is interesting, but the kids really do NOT care what it looks like. If it's cake and they get to eat it that's what matters to them.Looks like a little finger took a swipe on the stem when I wasn't looking.

I probably went a little overboard on the vines and leaves, but oh well...I was having fun making them.

I also made homemade bread today and tinted it orange for the season. Add the tint when you are dissolving your yeast. We sometimes have an "Orange" dinner during October and make/or tint as much as we can Orange...i.e. sweet potatoes, or tinted mashed potatoes, orange soda and/or orange ice cubes, carrots, orange Jell-O, etc. The main dish can be tricky to find something orange but we do the best we can. The kids always have fun when we do these dinners.
