Pumpkin Spice Cake

Soooo…I kind of went a little pumpkin crazy this weekend, but it’s not my fault!!! For some reason I was at the store picking up a few things and somehow a can of Libby’s pumpkin got into my basket, it was the strangest thing. So obviously I had to get it ;). It was a 29 oz. can and the pumpkin spice cake recipe I decided to try out only required 15 oz. so therefore, I had to find another way to use the other half of the can (hence the pumpkin frenzy continued in my mini pumpkin bundt cakes post)!
