Footnote: If you want, you can cover the sides of the cake with cream cheese frosting or just serve like me by sprinkling some ground cinnamon and powdered sugar. I cut the sides of the cake to get sharp ends and prepared 4 portions parfait with remaining cake pieces and frosting. You can use one desert spoon pumpkin spice instead of all spices I gave.
Tips: Use all ingredients at room temperature. My cake baked in 12 minutes. Check after ten minutes with a toothpick whether it is baked or not. You can ask anything about the recipes in FAQ part.
