Instead of using individual spices, I used 1 TBSP pumpkin pie spice for the cake, then took some of my Vanilla Buttercream and added some pumpkin pie spice (no measurements, just add until it tasted good.) I got more raves over that than any other part of the cake (except for the overall appearance of the cake.) Repeat after me "To Die for"!
Bob~~I have tried 4 Walmarts and 3 grocery stores and have had no success finding the pumpkin spice instant pudding. I checked online, but don't want to pay $12-30 for a pudding mix I will seldom use. Did you by chance try it WITHOUT
that pudding mix BEFORE
you made your final recipe? I saw your response on her recipe link and noticed that you purchased a lot of the pudding. Just curious if the pudding is REALLY, REALLY
needed? And "Thank You" for telling us it makes 12 cups of batter--that is really helpful. (I hate measuring the batter a recipe produces!)
I'm still stunned by your excellent cake, by the way. Cannot believe that this was your first time doing this sort of cake. Wow......
