Pumpkin cake for two ~

A pumpkin cake for two ~ a sweet presentation.

Use 4" cake pans.  Wrap as pictured, with a parchment strip and twine.  I like the package mood, the natural colors...obviously...I use it repeatedly.  :)

This time with the cream cheese frosting, I used a cream cheese to butter ratio of 3:1.  I usually use close to 2:1.  I add less powdered sugar than most frostings I've tried, I prefer it that way.  Customers seem to appreciate that.  A consistent comment I get is that my cakes are not overly sweet. 
Anywhoo ~~~

I took the sweet cake outside just to get a shot with blue - - I've missed being a part of Blue Monday on a regular basis.  Happy Blue Monday!
