Pumpkin Pie Cake

 You can see the magic of how the pie layer settles to the bottom and the cake part floats to the top of this yummy recipe.  I used vanilla icing, but next time I might just use a dollop of cool whip.  The cake itself is pretty sweet.  
Napkins I am using .... of course candy corn pattern.

Yes!!  Pumpkin Pie Cake!  
Rolled all into one yummy dessert. 

Pumpkin Pie Cake
One can 30 oz. Pumpkin Pie Mix
One box Spice cake
4 eggs
2 sticks of butter, melted

Vanilla icing (I used premade in a tub) 1 tub

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
9x13 pan, greased

I used a stand up mixer
Mix canned pumpkin pie mix and 4 eggs
when completely combined,
add 1/3 cake mix
add 1/3 melted butter
repeat till all mix and butter are added
(this helps the powdered cake mix to not fly all over your kitchen) so I've heard.
Once combined, pour into your cake pan

Bake 45-55 minutes for the center to NOT be jiggly.  Mine took 50 minutes.

Completely cool and top with icing.

Make 12 generous pieces

Think Thanksgiving! or tonight!

Press for Champagne... please

Because I saw this for $184 dollars on Etsy.

I made this.... for one of my best friends that just adores Champagne and whose daughter got married last weekend.  My girlfriends and I are putting together a sussy bag for the Mother of the Bride and this is my little sussy for her.

 Get extra paper because you will off center or cut the rectangle too short!

 So fun, I bought two push bells.  I may just have to make a second one for moi!

Frame - Hobby Lobby
Paper - Michaels
Push Button - Amazon NuTone Unlighted Pushbutton- Antique Brass
Gorilla Glue

Here is how easy you can make one too.  Pick font and print phrase.  Cut and place paper under glass and glue pushbutton right onto glass.  Voila, champagne anyone and thanks Leslie Anne for the Pinterest inspiration.

It is Fall in Texas... but still 90 degrees outside

Around the living room in 10 seconds.  Just a few Fall touches, but makes me feel like Fall is almost here! A "what is it?" at the end of the post too.

 Love these scrumptious velvet pumpkins from Market Street.  A last year find they were.
This Pottery Barn basket is huge, but was fun to fill.

 This month I found this huge velvet pumpkin at Market Street.  10 bucks, less than what I paid for the velvet ones last year, but it does have a plastic stem.  
 My question... What was this little silver box/purse/clutch used for?  I found it at Round Top Flea market.  Your guess?  
Here is what I use it for!

Final reveal ~ Project Light and bright.

When I say done, that means... until the next time I decide to change things up a bit.  If you have followed along, thanks for your patience.  I finally decided, I love my red couch and for now.. it stays. I will start with my two favorite changes to the rooms.  Go here to see..the new front door and "new to me" buffet.
The buffet was a Craig's List find!  Solid mahogany, 1980's Kindel buffet.  The new iron door brings in so much more light and we love the Flemish glass panes.
The dollhouse had to stay because all the grands love playing with it.
MissRaylyn loves my pink magnolia needlepoint chair.  She says she is a princess when she sits on it and we do have a tiara for her to wear.  Of course!
Hubby and I just refinished the floors.... aren't they purty?
My little grouping of crowns reminds me of Mardi Gras and my Louisiana roots.  Thankfully none of my family in Louisiana was caught up in the flood.  But, my sister is helping all over Baton Rouge and housing a displaced family.

The project began with recovering my dinning room chairs.  Then new sheer curtains and finally the door and buffet. The plan was to have the couch changed to an ivory color.  But, after shopping the house and moving things around to other rooms, the sitting room makes me happy.
