Cook the Issue 2010: Brown Butter Pumpkin Layer Cake

This cake was a HUGE hit at my Dad's birthday party this afternoon.  Everybody loved it, kids and adults.  One person thought it was too a little sweet, but everyone else loved it.  I made double the amount of frosting and triple the amount of nut praline.  I did not use all of either, but I have the leftover praline for snacks and I did use some of the extra frosting to help make the cake look as pretty as possible.  I did a skim coat of frosting, chilled, and then added a finishing layer.  I am not a great froster so this helped with some of the crumbs.  The brown butter flavor in the frosting was just fantastic!  I am glad I made the effort to make this beautiful cake for my Dad's birthday--he appreciated it very much.

Have fun and I'll check in to see what you guys are cooking. Posted: 6:21 am on October 25th
