So what’s my opening paragraph gonna be for this post?
You see, i have the worst habit ever. No thanks to the technology these days, i’ve been baking and cooking based on recipes i found online using the phone instead of the old school way, jotting down onto my recipe book. Sometimes when the boys secretly use my phone, (yes, secretly because 99% of the time, they’re not allowed to touch my phone) they will accidentally delete off some pages/links? Or in this case, it might even be me, the sotong, who always forgets to save links or bookmark them.
I’ve been wanting to blog about this cake since the longest time but never did because well, i lost the recipe. But this cake is so amazing, so unforgettable that i literally begged for the link to the recipe through this blog of mine, and also through my Facebook Page and i found it! Wheeeeeee! Again, thank you, Shan.. for being so helpful and kind! :)
If you’re a pumpkin lover, you.have.to.try.this.

I really gotta stop raving about this cake. Otherwise, i’ll never stop. I can go on and on and on and on about it and i’m not the only one. The in laws loved it to bits and pieces as well!
So now that the recipe has be found, i’ll let my photos do the talking. *wink*
Ps. orange/yellowish food is so hard to photograph! The hue, the lighting, the sun.. not quite a good combination. I had a tough time editing… so i didn’t. Hope you still find the cake droolicious! :)
