I served this pumpkin variation at Thanksgiving this year instead of Pumpkin Pie and nobody missed the pie! Kudos once again to Paula Deen.

Tips

Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise

Add one table spoon of mayo to a cake mix to make the cake more moist.


Flat Top Cake layers

Flat Top Cake layers

Take an old dish towel and cut it into strips. Wet the strips and squeeze them out. Once you have poured your batter in the pan and patted the bottom to remove air bubbles take a wet towel strip and wrap it around the cake pan and tuck the end into the wrapped strip. (If they are not long enough attach them together with safety pins.) This will allow the cake to cook evenly and will give you more of a flat top to decorate.
