Honestly, can you ever go wrong with pumpkin and cream cheese anything??? This year my stepdaughter requested this instead of any kind of birthday cake, it is her absolute favorite. I sometimes make it for Thanksgiving or Christmas, and it makes a lot, but we put it in the fridge and enjoy with the rest of the holiday leftovers!
