This is a great pumpkin cake for any occasion for people who like pumpkin recipes. It can also be a good holiday dessert for a potluck or family gathering when you have to bring a dish. It is very moist and it just falls apart in your mouth and with the mix of the pumpkin and cream cheese frosting, it has a rich flavor that is so easy to make.
