Best cake ever…

Well now, I love cake…and I love pumpkins…this combines the two in the most yumtastical cake invented.



Pumpkin Cake

1 cup vegetable oil, 2 cups sugar, 4 eggs…………beat this together then add

1 can pumpkin (or 15oz pumpkin puree)

2 cups flour

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

2 tsp baking power

1 cup chopped nuts (i prefer to use pecans)

Beat it all together and then pour into a large, greased glass/pyrex dish. Bake at 350F/175C/gas 4 for 30 minutes.

Leave until cooled completely before icing.


6-8oz cream cheese, 12 tbsp butter, 2 tsp milk or cream, 5 cups icing sugar, 2 tsp vanilla essence, dash of salt.

Mix well until blended totally. Spread over the cooled pumpkin cake.

I usually use half of the amount of frosting for my cakes as it makes sooo much! And i rake a fork over the top to make it look pretty then sprinkle with cinnamon 🙂 I find that the cake is best served straight from the fridge.

I plan on making my pumpkin cake tomorrow ready for Halloween munching!

Pumpkin Socks

*click to buy cuteness*

Arent these little socks so cute and lovely!!! They are far too tiny for me to wear though…baby socks? you ask…nay, not even….then what has such tiny feet that such socks could fit??!


Yes, they are little socks for dogs to wear! However I dont recommend you letting your dog wear socks…dogs need their paws to be free as they regulate heat through them…plus dogs that have socks on walk in a very silly fashion. Maybe just get socks for your dog and leave them on for 2 minutes so you can chuckle at them a little 😀
