This is a great smelling cake, full of spice. However, it is a bit bland because it lacks flavor. There is nothing to make your tongue go 'wow' or to set the pumpkin element in. If one had their eyes masked, they would think it was soley a spice cake. I opted not to use the cloves because they are generally too much for a cake, especially a pumpkin one. I added ginger instead, usually used in pumpkin pies rather than cloves, which made it more gingerbready. The crust turns out very crusty at the top and chewy underneath, but the center is very moist. I used real pumpkin which gave an interesting texture, but I doubt canned pumpkin would provide drastically different results. I am sticking to pumpkin pie! :)
