Fall Treat Fail

In honor of the delicious fall treats circling here, here, and here, I thought I would share my recent attempt at an edible fall This post is proof that I can't matter how easy the recipe. It's just not in the cards for me.

This recipe couldn't have been any easier. You mix a spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin together and bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees. When cooled, ice the cake and sprinkle with cinnamon. Simple huh? Well it wasn't for me. The dang cake wouldn't cook. I ended up cooking it for 20 minutes and it was still falling apart. I'm pretty much blaming it on the oven...that's got to be it, right?

I realize it looks okay at this point, but the center is mush. Just a mess of pumpkin mush.

I'm not going to lie to you. We ate it anyway....and it wasn't half bad. :)

Looks like I won't be quitting my day job anytime soon.


  1. courtney, i have full confidence in you! and you are already going in the right direction...spice mix, applesauce, vanilla. Bake it. Done. You can do it, girl!

  2. haha.... awww, it's okay baldface. besides if you put enough creamcheese icing on it, you really can't go wrong. creamcheese icing makes everything better. ps... glad to see hayley's drug free still:)

  3. Haha. I am somehow the worst baker ever! Cooking, is okay. Baking usually ends with something I didn't plan. haha.
