We know about the Halloween tricks, and we know about the Halloween treats. But what about a fall-inspired sweet that's a little bit of column A and a little bit of column B? When you think of it that way, making a peekaboo pumpkin pound cake is kind of genius. It being both a trick and a treat, your guests will get a kick out of seeing the tasty "surprise" in every slice.
For the pound cake
For the icing
1. Prepare the pumpkin bread
Mix up the pumpkin bread ingredients according to the directions on the box. Add orange food coloring to make it more "pumpkin-y" looking (less brown).
2. Bake and cut
Bake in a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan according to the directions. Remove from the oven before completely done, about 8 – 10 minutes less than instructed. Let cool, remove from the pan, and refrigerate for up to 4 hours. Cut the cold pumpkin bread into large slices. Cut out pumpkin shapes from the slices.
Align them down the center of a lightly greased and floured 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
