Fall Baking Urges

So with the weather getting colder i keep having these strong urges to bake!!! And what did i decide to make? I opted to try and make a delcious pumpkin roll. And i was completely expecting to fail horrible because i dont have the best of luck when it comes to baking, most of the time the things i bake (with the exception of my oatmeal chocolate chip cookies) turn out simply awful. So here are the pics from the baking.
The Pumpkin cake before i rolled it up in the towel to cool

The delcious Cream Cheese Frosting Filling

The finished project (half eaten mind you). It was a karge pumpkin roll so i was expecting it to last at week....... Yeah Right! Apparently it was really delicious, i mean i liked it but ya know, it was so good that my husband helped me devour it in a matter of days. lol. And It went so well that i decided to make it for Family Dinner too!!! If you wanna give it a try heres the recipe.

5. Bake 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
6. Prepare a clean kitchen towel by sprinkling heavily with powdered sugar.
7. After baking, turn the cookie sheet onto the towel, the cake should slide out onto the towel. Starting at one end, roll up the cake into the towel. Cool 30-40 minutes.
