4 tsp
ground cinnamon
3 tsp
baking powder
3 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
ground nutmeg
2/4 tsp
ground cloves
8 large
eggs, lightly beaten
2
(15 ounce) cans pumpkin
1 1/3 c
packed brown sugar
1 1/3 c
granulated sugar
2/3 c
vegetable oil

FROSTING

2/3 c
butter, softened
7 c
powdered sugar
6 Tbsp
whole milk
2 tsp
pure vanilla extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 24 5-ounce egg-shaped muffin cups; set aside.
2
In a medium bowl stir together flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cloves.
3
In a large bowl combine eggs, pumpkin, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vegetable oil; whisk until smooth.
4
Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture, one-third at a time, stirring just until combined after each addition.
5
Spoon a scant 1/4 cup batter into each prepared muffin cup, filling each about half full*.
6
Bake 20 to 22 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched.
7
Remove from pans. Cool completely on wire rack.
8
Split cakes horizontally. If necessary, trim tops of cakes so they will sit flat when inverted.
9
For Buttercream Frosting:
In a large mixing bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth.
10
Gradually add 1 1/2 cups of the powdered sugar, beating well.
11
Beat in milk and vanilla.
12
Gradually beat in enough of the remaining powder sugar to reach desired consistency.
13
Spread frosting over one cake half; top with remaining half.
14
Pipe "laces" on top. Repeat with remaining cakes.
15
*Use any remaining batter to make cupcakes. Line 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with paper bake cups. Fill two-thirds full with batter. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 15 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
