This beautiful layered cake has a creamy filling with a mild pumpkin flavor and a little spice. It's quick and always turns out so well. The nuts and caramel topping add a nice finishing touch, but you could also try other toppings as a variation. —Trixie Fisher, Piqua, Ohio

I made this last year and it was delicious. I made it torte style and it was very pretty. Making it a torte was easier and faster than layering it and I am all for easy and fast. I could not find a fault with this if I tried. i am making it again this year for Christmas
