Pumpkin Baking - IT'S ON!

It started with a knock on the door Friday night reminding us of the block party the following day and my husband letting them know I would bring a cake for the cake walk.  Oops, forgot about that one.  So what is the easiest last minute cake to whip up?  A Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake!  As luck would have it I had frosting already made so the decorating was easy!  Here is my Ode to the Pumpkin Patch Cookie.

My contribution to the pot luck were Pumpkin Whoopie Pies.  Swoon.

To round out the weekend I made the Cinnamon Roll Pumpkin Vanilla Sheet Cake from Picky Palate for our small group.  It was made with a cake mix base.  My, my, Pumpkin Pie.  This was good!  Go look at her pictures because they are WAY better than mine.  They will tempt you to try it.  Mine is just proof that I did :)

Just to prepare myself for holiday baking I took everything off my baking shelf in the pantry to do a little inventory.  Ummmm, I need to use up some of this stuff!  At least I can whip up at least five different things with a moments notice :)  I have a baking problem....which is evident looking at every different kind of chip you can imagine!


  1. You are so funny! I don't want to do inventory. I might feel the need to bake and gain pounds. ;)

  2. That last picture cracks me up!

  3. WOW!!! Your pantry is STOCKED!!!

    And I wish I was your neighbor so I can come eat all the leftover goodies!!!!!
