I found this recipe in Country Living Magazine about 4 yrs ago. I tried it out when my Ex's job had a contest requiring you to decorate, and use a pumpkin. I actually gutted, and carved a pumpkin. Lined the inside, and then layered the cake cubes with the Orange Cream Cheese Frosting. We actually won 2nd Place! Every time I make this cake, everyone asks for the recipe. Enjoy!
