I absolutely love Fall recipes and anything with pumpkin. I know that this has gotten a bad wrap over the years and is now referred to as basic by the hipsters and teens but as usual, I really don’t care. I will continue to whip up delicious recipes containing pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg, and enjoy every single bite because it is just as delicious as it has always been, despite the stereotype.

This Frosted Pumpkin Spice Cake is so easy to whip up too, it can be made in as little as a half an hour. Now, who doesn’t have time for that?

Whipping up this cake is a great way to give your home a nice Fall scent. I just love the way my house smells whenever I bake something with pumpkin and spices, it really warms up your home too.

The hardest part about making this Fall treat is not eating the entire cake yourself. This is especially hard once you pile the cream cheese frosting on top. Yum!
