Pumpkin Pie Cake

Prep: 15 minutes Bake: 60 minutes Assemble: 60 minutes

1 c butter
2 c sugar
4 eggs
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1.5 c pureed pumpkin
3.5 c flour

Cream butter sugar and eggs
add pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt and mix
add flour and pumpkin
grease two pyrex bowls and add cake mix evenly
bake at 375 F for one hour

Pie filling:
1 1/3 c pumpkin puree
1 1/3 c sweetened condensed milk
1 egg
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 c hot water

Mix all ingredients together in order
pour into greased round cake pan and bake for 1 hour at 375 F at the same time as you bake the cake sections so as to save time.

6 T butter
4 c powdered sugar
2 T milk
1 T vanilla
Orange and Green food coloring

mix all ingredients and color 1/2 c green and all the rest orange

chill the cakes and pie in freezer until ready to assemble.

To Assemble and Frost:

1 c. of chocolate chips
two half circle cakes
one pumpkin pie without crust
Frosting(cream cheese frosting would be a wonderful substitute for the buttercream)

place one half of pumpkin cake round side down onto serving platter. Sprinkle chocolate chips onto cake, then place pumpkin pie portion on top of cake, cut to fit. sprinkle more chocoalte chips then place other half of pumpkin on top of pie. this may smoosh out some pie filling, dont worry about it, as long as it isnt gooping off the cake you are fine!
take about 1/2 cup of frosting and color green, color the rest orange and begin to frost cake in orange starting at the top and moving downward slowly and evenly with rounded knife or frosting tool. after you covered most of the cake, take knife and frost in downward line pattern from top to bottom of cake.
Put green in zip bag or pastry bag or frosting bag, whatever you have on hand. starting at top of cake, frost in a circlular pattern to form a small stub resembling a stem, continue to "draw" leaves and vines on the cake in a pattern to your liking. if you like, also add grass or more vines at the bottom of the cake ( i like to do that if i messed up or didnt have enough orange frosting!)
Serve and Enjoy!
