Who can turn down cream cheese frosting, right? I'll often find a lonely can of pumpkin in my cupboard sometimes and this is a great way to use it up!! I have extra large cookie sheets (16 X 12 ) so I will double the frosting.
Like many others, I have made this for years and everyone just loves it! It really is easy and is just so yummy it's hard to eat just one piece! I'll be making it again tomorrow for our Thanksgiving dinner.
I have made this cake at least once a year since it was published in the Taste of Home Product Guide several years ago.. I make it according to directions and it turns out perfect and delicious every time. I always receive many compliments on it too.
The Best tasting cake. My favorite
Wonderful cake! One of my favorites!
