Double Pumpkin Spice Cake

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. In honor of the fall season and Coffe-mate’s seasonal creamers I’ve created a Pumpkin Spice cake with a Pumpkin Spice Glaze using their Pumpkin Spice Creamer.

Pumpkin is a flavor that just needs to wait until September to make it’s premier for me. It’s not that I don’t like it outside of Fall/Winter but it is that much sweeter to save it until the beginning of Fall. I love walking through the grocery stores and the Farmer’s Market and seeing all the seasonal flavors. Pumpkin Spice always jumps out at me. It’s warm and comforting much like my daily morning of coffee.

Recently I helped re-start a playgroup and we plan on meeting at the park until we just can’t stand the cold anymore. We’re doing this for the kids, because its good for them to get social and run around and play but we’re also doing it for us because Moms need a break too. We need a minute (or 60) to relax and talk with other adults.

Now that it’s getting cooler we have begun to add coffee to our weekly meet up. We sit in a little gazebo sipping coffee and chatting while our children run around and burn off energy. I’ve designated myself in charge of bringing the creamer because well, I love coffee creamer, we use it every single morning and I’m always on the hunt for a new flavor we haven’t tried or the glorious moment when the seasonal flavors arrive in stores. One of the most haves is Peppermint Mocha and Pumpkin Spice since we’re not quite in the Peppermint Mocha season I added Pumpkin Spice to our weekly meeting and a delicious Pumpkin Spice Cake with a Pumpkin Spice Glaze.
