This is a wonderful recipe I discovered and changed a bit to suit my taste. I love the flavor of pumpkin and the cinnamon makes ordinary cream cheese frosting extra special. When I made a batch for my husband to take to work, he said they disappeared in record time.—Debbie Wiggins, Longmont, Colorado
Packed with warm pumpkin flavor and spices, this lightened-up version of Shirley Dellinger's recipe baked up even taller than the original! But our Test Kitchen brought it in at just about half the fat, saturated fat and cholesterol—with 187 fewer calories per slice! That's a sweet success Shirley's family in Elwood, Indiana can savor.
My Godson and I made this cake after fun day at the science museum. We've made it several times now, and we get a kick out of experimenting with the frosting colors. —Faith Cromwell, San Francisco, California
Most kids will love the gruesome gummy body parts they find in the center of these cupcakes, but if it is too much for you, use any kind of autumn-motif gummies for the same sweet taste!—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
Fresh from reader Leah Grooms' "pumpkin patch", this rich cake's so flavorful it'll dress up any autumn event. What's more, she writes from her Rockingham, North Carolina kitchen, it keeps for days—so you can prepare it prior to your party.—Leah Grooms, Rockingham, North Carolina
Easy to prepare and popular with my friends and family, this apple cake is one of my all-time favorite autumn recipes. A slice of this soft treat is delicious with a hot cup of coffee or tea.—Monica Burns, Lusby, Maryland
