This cake was just ok. The cake itself is not overly sweet, which is nice, but it's more of a chocolate cake than a pumpkin cake. The pumpkin flavor is overpowered by the chocolate. I had to bake it for 65 minutes instead of 40. After cooling it came out of the pan smoothly. I did not, however, like the icing. Maybe I made it wrong, but the icing just absorbed into the cake, not laying on top and slowly drizzling down nicely like in the picture. Perhaps this could be remedied by letting it cool a little before drizzling it on. The recipe said to do it immediately though. I was going to make this for a Thanksgiving potluck for my husband's office, but I'm going to make pumpkin curry soup instead.
