I had a recipe for spiced pumpkin cake years ago, but I wanted to dress it up a bit.  I was thinking more like a pumpkin version of a Boston Cream Pie.  This is what it turned out to be.

Having turkey sandwiches the next day is a bonus.

The only way I could have made these any better would be to add white chocolate chips.  But, I think that would have been a bit too much.
