Pumpkin Gingerbread
I agree with some other feedbacks: it is way too much sugar. Spices are not enough and you can not taste any ginger. Salt is not necessary at all. I added only 1 cup brown sugar, more spices, fresh ginger and fresh shredded pumpkin flesh. It turned great after the changes. Tip: for pumpkin flesh don`t use the pie pumpkin( flesh is too hard) but the big one that you want to carve. Remove flesh with a spoon and put into the dough. It has a juicy flesh and resolves when mixed with other ing. Way better as can :-)

Awesome Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting
I have to agree with the previous comments. The cake is way too sweet and oily. Also so much salt is not necessary. You have to bake the cake def. more than 40 minutes! A oil base doug/pastry should be bake by 320 F for about 60-75minutes! But I like the idea with the pineapple. Very nice! Just take only 1 cup of suger, only 1 cup of oil, only a pinch of salt and the cake it perfect! I love to ad walnuts or replace it with pumpkin/almonds.
