    not what we expected

    Eileen Chetti from White Plains, NY

    This is a very moist cake, very easy to make, but the gingerbread element is much stronger than the pumpkin. I didn't have whipped topping on hand, so I served slices sprinkled with confectioner's sugar, but that didn't really work. A few days later, I heated a slice in the microwave and spread it with butter. That did the trick--it's very tasty this way, as more of a savory bread than a cake, and the butter mellowed the strong ginger flavor significantly (probably the whipped topping would have done the same--but I don't really like whipped topping anyway).
