Basic Cream Cheese Frosting
I like this recipe as a base, but I did add some changes. I did 1 1/2 blocks of 8oz cream cheese, and 2.5 cups powdered sugar. Gave it a cream cheese kick without being to sweet. I had to put in fridge to harden up. But great start! Thank you

Pumpkin Cake III
The best! I took the suggestions of others and did 3/4 cup oil and 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce. I also added 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice. I was going to add more cinnamon but I use Watkins and that can be over powering sometimes. Made with cream cheese frosting on this site (played with that) Excellent reviews, entering into bake off at the end of the month at work. Thank you!
