Pumpkin Patch Torte
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
I made this for the Halloween dessert contest at work and my co-workers loved it, received "Tastiest" dessert award.
My family totally loved this cake. I took pictures of my daughter and I through out the process and we had so much fun all the way through the last bite. It turned out looking just like the picture and we have only had 1 pumpkin slide off the top otherwise we had peaks and valleys for 2 days. It's definitely more than 12 servings we actually got about 28 out of it as we shared with friends and we are a family of 6 and had some 2 days in a row. Thank you Taste of Home Test Kitchen. This is a winner according to my family.
You should freeze the cake and use cream cheese frosting.
Frustrating...could not get the egg white mixture to have stiff peaks. Could be the weather (?) or that I didn't have a candy thermometer. Made it a cake in a 9 x 13 dish. More trouble to make than it was worth.
The cake had great flavor but I didn't love the maple frosting.
I'm going to try making this recipe, but I'll do it the way my Mom would have made it: like a jelly roll. Since it's nice and thin, I'm going to spread the frosting on the cake without cutting it into pieces. Then just roll it up! Hopefully it will work :)
This cake had a very nice taste and was moist. I followed the directions and took it to a picnic 5 minutes away and by the time I arrived it had slid apart and was a mess and impossible to straighten. I wish I had read the reviews before I made it. The icing was very good and worth the time it took to make it. I might make it again but not in layers but one layer in a 9x13 pan.
Made this for a fall birthday. Delicious cake, although I make cream cheese frosting instead of the recipe's icing. It was a hit at the party. Also easy way to decorate.

Everything went fine until I put the frosting on the Torte. What a mess! Slip sliding away! Toothpicks all over! The cake is nice and moist but could hardly taste the pumpkin in it. It tasted more like a spice cake than anything. For all my effort I was very disappointed. 15 minutes of beating the frosting was not worth the effort.
