Let Them Eat Cake

October 16, 2012

 

 

Cathy talked about making the cake with orange and cranberry.  She loves that combination.  I’m not sure if she’ll make it for Thanksgiving, but I’m sure if she did it would be a hit.

I made the cake with the pumpkin.  I loved that I could just through the ingredients together so quickly.  I made this before work the other morning and just loaded it into the car.  The smell during my commute was heavenly.

My only complaint is that I don’t have a picture of the new cakes.

What variation can you think of?  What about the chocolate cake mix?
