Just in time for Halloween...this dessert is wonderful. You can decorate by putting little small Halloween candy on top. Kids love these.

Halloween will be even sweeter if you make this magic nut cake. Very soft and moist, you taste the nutmeg and cinnamon in the cake. The cream cheese frosting gives it a sweet, buttery, and creamy topping. This pumpkin cake reminds us of a carrot cake.
