Love gingerbread and pumpkin? This cake is for you. The gingerbread cake is super moist with a delicious pumpkin flavor. You taste a bit of spiciness from the cake, but the flavors are balanced by the cool, sweet tang of the yummy cream cheese frosting. If you're looking for a real gingerbread cake for the holiday's this is it. You will not be disappointed. Super yummy! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
