Susan, I adore these little cakes and pumpkin is my fav. I love to set a pretty elaborate holiday table and I love to individualize things. These will be perfect at each place setting beside a mini framed baby picture of my guest. Thank you so much for posting, you always have such wonderful ideas and recipes ! hugs
