    This is always a BIG hit where ever I take it. I toast pecans or walnuts and chop them then press them into the icing at the very last. It is absolutely delish!

    Excellent! The cake is simple, yet divine with the spices and pumpkin, then top it off with the cream cheese frosting and it's divine. Nice way to welcome Autumn :)
