I was just wondering early this morning how you all feel about a coffin in your neighbors' front yard? We decorate for Halloween and Fall but not with a coffin, but our neighbors have put a coffin in their front yard for the last 7 years. The first 2 or 3 years they used a baby coffin, which was just unbearable for me to look at or think about. The last 3 or 4 years they have used this great big one. One year it stayed there til almost Thanksgiving. I know that it is Halloween and it is their yard, but it just creeps me out. Leave me a comment and let me know how you all feel about a "coffin in your neighbors' yard".
On to more pleasant things! I baked this wonderful pumpkin cake with cream cheese icing on Sunday! My mom gave me the recipe a long time ago! Everyone loves it! If you have never tried it, you should!
PUMPKIN CAKE WITH CREAM CHEESE ICING
1 cup vegetable oil
1 small can pumpkin
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 8oz pkg cream cheese
1 pound box powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
pecans for top(optional)
Dump the cake ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Beat with a mixer until thoroughly
blended. Pour batter into a buttered and floured 9 x 13 pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until cake tests done. Cool. Combine icing ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Beat with mixer until smooth. Spread on cooled cake. Sprinkle with nuts if you want!
