  5. Sounds yummy! Will give that one a try. I was puzzling over "1 lid of orange extract" - then it finally dawned on me that you pour the extract into the bottle lid - just like I do with vanilla sometimes! I had just never heard that expression. Cute! Carol

  27. Hi Marydon!
    I will have to make this for my oldest daughters birthday next month. Her favorite pie is pumpkin which one of her friends usually gives her on her birthday. But I think this cake would certainly make her day.

  33. My family makes this cake a tad different...we buy a box of spice cake mix and add the pumpkin to it...we were told it is fat free?? Who knows...we do eat it without the icing, it is that moist! The icing with orange sounds nice though!

  47. Marydon, when you make the cake, do you also add the water/oil/eggs called for on the box mix? Or only the canned pumpkin and spice?
    Thanks for your help!
