**Disclaimer: I’m so sorry I’ve been gone for months! Andrew and I finally got married October 12 and now that the stress of our wedding is over I hope to be back more! As soon as I get our professional photos back I will post them along with some details from our wedding!
One of my greatest abilities when it comes to cooking is laughing at my failed attempts. This is certainly one of them. Possibly my ugliest creation yet. I can attribute a lot of that, though, to the fact that once I realized this was going to look nothing like it was supposed to I just quit trying. I’m sure you’ve all seen that beautiful pumpkin cake on Pinterest. You know, the one with the caption “2 bundt cakes stacked together! So easy!”, yeah, that one. Well…it wasn’t so easy. Mine looked nothing like a pumpkin. Really, NOTHING like a pumpkin. On the bright side, the cake tasted soooo much better than it looked! It was still worth making because it was yummy eating. To the girl who made the cake you see on Pinterest, bless you, you have far more time and talent than I do.
You Will Need:
-2 boxes of spice cake mix (and the ingredients needed on the box)
-5oz cream cheese (a little over half a block)
-1 stick of unsalted butter
-2 cups of powdered sugar
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1/4 teaspoon almond extract
-1 Tablespoon milk
-Orange food coloring
-Make the spice cake according to the package. You will make 2 separate cakes. In a bundt cake pan
-Beat together cream cheese and butter until fluffy
-Mix in 1/3 of the powdered sugar
-Mix in another 1/3 of the powdered sugar
-Mix in the last 1/3 of powdered sugar
-Mix in vanilla, almond, and milk
-Mix in orange food coloring until desired color
-When the cakes are done and cooled stack them on top of each other to look like a pumpkin
-Frost the cakes
I hope yours turns out much better than mine did! Best of luck decorating!
