A cake that looks like a lovely, bright orange pumpkin! It is not just for Halloween decoration or Thanksgiving pie filling, bit it is a vegetable rich in minerals and vitamins; also Beta carotene, a powerful anti-oxidant, lots of fiber and potassium. The beautiful pumpkin heralds Autumn when we relish the colorful hue of the fall foliage. Fall - the pumpkin season is gateway to new beginnings, the promise of cooler, sweeter weather, colorful leaves, and lots of fall activities. It means starting to wear cute boots, that favorite sweater and scarves, not to forget sipping that fall drink of choice.
This gourd-like creation is a carrot-walnut cake with cream cheese filling; the best vegetable source. I did not deface it by painting a Jack-o-lantern.
