    I would just drizzle the frosting on the cake,like a glaze. The cake is so good and moist it doesn't need to be totally covered in frosting.

    This was very very easy to put together and was enjoyed by all! It was very moist. DS ate 2 pieces and was begging for another. I drizzled cream cheese frosting on top only because I didnt have have cream cheese. I will be making this often this fall!! Thank you for posting!

    Another high rating for a great cake. I baked it for my roomates birthday and used one third of the batter to add cocoa (1/4 cup) to and spooned it into the bundt pan alternately with the regular batter... (she loves pumpkin but also likes chocolate cake) Anyways, I didnt have cream cheese so i just bought a betty crocker tub of it and tinted it orange and shaved chocolate on top. Gorgeous cake- it was gone in a day and I will save the recipe for the future. Thanks!!

    This cake was wonderful! It's so nice and moist. I gave part of it to my mother and she loves it too.

    I love this cake. I have used this recipe for years just as it's written. I was out of cinnamon once and used pumpkin pie spice and it was just as good. I bake it in a bundt pan.
