When do you turn on your Christmas music? Start watching Christmas movies? Put up your tree? Our family, traditionally, has ALWAYS gone the day or two after Thanksgiving to chop down a tree, then we bring it back, let it settle and decorate it the next day. But always before the Thanksgiving weekend is over. With spiked Eggnog of course.
The music and movies..I generally don’t start listening to and watching until after Thanksgiving as well..I try not to anyway..hate to rush the seasons. However, I feel like time is flying so fast this year that by starting it all a little earlier, it’ll maybe make the holiday season feel a little bit longer. One can only hope, right? I’m craving the holiday spirit!
But, since Thanksgiving isn’t here yet, we can still talk about Pumpkin! No need to rush the food aspects of the holidays..I’m savoring every last one!
These little pumpkin cakes are about the size of a cookie. They’re so cute! AND technically they’re pre-portioned..so you don’t have to eat an entire half of a cake and call it a slice..Not sure if I know anyone who has done THAT before! 😉 What can I say, I love cake. But that’s why these are like a mini pumpkin cake!
They are soft, crumbly, moist, spiced pumpkin flavored cakes, with a maple cream cheese frosting. You will love the frosting, because the maple pairs so perfect with pumpkin..and cinnamon, well don’t you all love cinnamon? I wish I had one of these for breakfast. Oh, if you didn’t know already, cake for breakfast is perfectly acceptable during the holiday season!
