While at the store yesterday, my boyfriend saw a Pumpkin Spice Cake. He mentioned the cake a couple of times so I figured he must want me to make something like that. I told him that I could make one and that we didn’t need to buy one.

Since today is Columbus Day, I had the day off. Yep, bankers get all of the holidays off, even the BS holidays. But I’m not complaining. I like my days off. So today I decided to make the easy pumpkin spice cake. I was going to make one from scratch but I had a lot of things to do today so I decided to make one using boxed cake mix. *gasp* Seriously, boxed cake mix tastes pretty darn good. Of course, when making from scratch, you eliminate a few additives but after scouring over the ingredients on the box, I wasn’t to concerned with any of the ingredients. Anyhow, I made this cake for Thanksgiving last year so I decided to make it again today since it got rave reviews from my family last Thanksgiving. I did make the cream cheese frosting from scratch because quite frankly, prepackaged icing tastes horrible. Just my opinion. If you prefer packaged icing, by all means, use it. But I suggest doing your tastebuds a favor and making my from scratch recipe. :)

I hope you enjoy the recipe!
