Pumpkin Carving!!

Every year we have an annual pumpkin carving get together. Everyone brings a pumpkin and I bring treats and cider. Nothing beats warm mulled cider. Well almost nothing, coffee at 6 am trumps everything. For treats last year I brought candy bars, the child in our circle of friends ate a bit too many and was off the wall! I had the worst tummy ache afterwards. So this year by request I made pumpkin spice cake. Jesse requested this and in the 8 years we have been together he has probably only ever requested sweets maybe 10 times. So whenever he does I almost always say yes. I made a 10″ cake and cupcake/muffins with dried cranberries and chocolate chips added.

We ate them too quickly to get photos after they baked.
