    I just made the mini carrot cakes as the directions said and swapped out solid pack pumpkin for the carrots- fabulous! Made the frosting as written as well...To die for- you don't have to grate the carrots so it saves some time too :)

    I love pumpkin... especially in the fall- kids love them too. I think they were more moist than the carrot ones- those were very dense.

    Sounds delish, we love all things pumpkin as well "Solid pack pumpkin" is that the same thing as a can of pumpkin?

    Exactly how much pumpkin did you use, I'm also wondering if you could use pumpkin pie spice in palce of the nutmeg??

    I used 3/4 cup of pumpking...yes that's canned pumkin- I clarified because they sell pumpkin pie filling...this was just plain pumpkin. I didn't have allspice, so I subbed cinnamon, nutmeg, and ground ginger... a pinch of each (larger pinch of the cinnamon). So I think pumpkin pie spice would be fine!
