The Caramel Glaze Pumpkin Pound Cake Adventure

Wednesday after work i knew i needed to get started on making the cake I was baking for Thanksgiving Dinner. I gathered all of the required ingredients and stood there looking at them for a moment.

It was a little daunting since I’ve never made the recipe before, had to gather my thoughts. It honestly was not so bad. And goodness did it start smelling good in the kitchen with all the cinnamon, sugar, pumpkin and vanilla in the air!

I was making progress and moving right along. Yay!

I did learn butter, sugar, and eggs start developing a cake batter substance that just needed flour and flavoring. Good to know for future endeavors.

I was nervous for a moment when the timer went off and the cake wasn’t done. After adding an additional 5-7 minutes a few extra times, it came out perfect. Don’t you think?

Okay, I know something happened that looks like it is the victim of a back alley cutting, but I was still pretty proud!
The caramel glaze waited until Thanksgiving morning. It only took about 20 minutes to make. The cake turned out really great! Every one loved it.
