German chocolate pumpkin spiced cake to be exact. Anyone who knows me well won't be surprised that my boss elected me to be *Baker Smurf* for Halloween. Why not Smurfette, I want to ask, but I guess those days have passed me by, and I digress. Since I've graduated from just making cakes that taste good, to cakes that taste good and look good (okay, still working on this one a bit), I needed to find a new challenge to keep my bakers fingers from getting lazy.
I decided to play around with different flavors and came across a season-appropriate recipe for German chocolate pumpkin spice cake. The frosting was cream cheese with a kick of cinnamon and cocoa powder. When my mom declared there was nothing to be changed, I knew I had hit pay dirt.
So what do I do next, to challenge my developing baking skills? Does frying potatoes in my newly acquired fry daddy count as baking? Well, I guess not, but somebody's gotta do it
