This cake was totally awesome! I took it to work and everyone just loved it. No wonder you have it every year during the holidays. I did have to bake it 8 minutes longer I guess due to high altitude (Denver area) but it turned out great. Thanks for sharing!

This came out good but was a bit drier than other pumpkin cakes I have made.

This was a great cake, and I have not been the best baker in the world. Well this cake has inspired me . So I love pumpkin but I needed a new swing for a new season,and here is what I came up with... I substituited pumpkin with Swans sugar free orange marmalade and replace cinnamon etc with vanillia. also added a little orange zets to the frosting. It was great. I will say bake at the 325 degrees so not to overflow pans. Iam now in search for other same textures, similair to pumkin Thank you again
