Recipe by Leslie from Kraft Kitchens
I love any recipe I can make ahead: Since one 15-oz. can pumpkin contains enough pumpkin for 2 Pumpkin Spice Rolls. I make 2, eat one now and enjoy the second one later. To store cake, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, then in foil. Store in freezer up to 1 month. Place in refrigerator to thaw overnight
