In my family, my grandmother loves to make a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. Here’s a different twist with the traditional pumpkin dessert for the big Turkey Day. First, I made some chocolate turkeys using some molds I bought at a local chocolate store. I also made some pumpkin molds, along with chocolate letters. The letters are milk chocolate, the pumpkins are white and milk chocolate, and the turkeys are a combination of mostly white chocolate with some milk chocolate mixed in for a lighter brown color.
Gobble Gobble! Instead of the traditional Happy Thanksgiving, I decided to use a different phrase. That’s just a funny word…you usually hear a chuckle when those words are shouted in a happy tone for a holiday. It’s contagious. Personally, I’m not a fan of pumpkin…but this cake is absolutely delicious!
1 box Duncan Hines yellow cake mix
1 large can pumpkin pie filling
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon baking soda
Mix all ingredients with electric mixer until well blended, about 3-5 minutes. Evenly distribute into cake pans (here I used three 9 inch cake pans) and bake at 350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes, until sides pull away from pans and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
