My Sour Cream Pumpkin Bundt Cake

Well, there it is — an exact replica of the Nestle cake!

ha! Worse than my food photography skills is my inability to notice when a cake is completely cooled and ready for the icing. Instead, my cake is sitting in a puddle of icing, which before serving I scraped off the plate and back onto the cake, only to watch it slide off again. No wonder a reviewer said to wait to ice each piece as it is served.

But all that matters is my mom enjoyed it because it wasn’t too sweet and my dad said he would eat another piece!

I will say either I am slower than molasses in the springtime or that estimated prep time of 12 minutes only counts for the assemby of ingredients and not measuring of each one. The streusel part was easy to do, I think the italics in the recipe frighten me more than they should!

Happy Birthday to SMB, too!

    Happy belated birthday Udandi’s mom 🙂

    In regards to prep time on recipes, I always ignore them. They are rarely accurate. It’s hard waiting for a cake to cool so you can ice it. I always end up eating some of the icing, sometimes more than I should while waiting.

    Enjoyed reading about American’s 10 Biggest Wastes of Money and couldn’t agree more on extravagant weddings being on the list. I’ve been to several weddings where they stopped counting expenses after they hit the $30K mark!!!! Insane. Even more insane is that they stopped counting expenses after that!
