These Pumpkin Dulce de Leche Mini Cakes are the delicious seasonal treat.
How’s your weekend, nice people? Mine was just perfect. Resting, sleeping, no cooking. Yes, you heard this right. Indeed, that’s not completely true because on Sunday I made a delicious pizza. That day I woke up earlier than I was planning (Thank you fall time change). So I started making a pizza before 9, and at 10 I had a delicious Sunday breakfast. And you know what I did next? I took a little nap!
Unfortunately, weekends don’t last forever, and we all have jumped into a new week. I won’t be complaining about how Mondays could easily ruin all the positive impact of a weekend. You know that feeling when on a Monday you already need another weekend, don’t you?
Pumpkin Dulce de Leche Mini Cakes – Perfect Cake
But I don’t want to sound negative. That’s why I’m going to only talk about these luscious dulcet These Pumpkin Dulce de Leche Mini Cakes. It deserves this.
This year I have made a few layer cakes, and this one is the best so far. I have always been honest with you mentioning some little things that stopped me from calling those cakes perfect. That’s not that story today. These Pumpkin Dulce de Leche Mini Cakes are just impeccable. Well, the appearance could be a bit better.
I’m rarely fully satisfied with biscuits. This one, made with real pumpkin puree, turned out great – moist, airy, even. From now on I am going to use pumpkin in cake recipes. Always. Even in a lavender cake (sounds hideous?) Although the biscuits were moist enough, I slightly brushed them with Pumpkin Spiced Tea.
Free tip: some whiskey or brandy would work too!
The frosting in these Pumpkin Dulce de Leche Mini Cakes was spot on too. Dulce de leche, butter, slightly salted cream cheese generously jazzed up with spices? Tell me it doesn’t sound mouthwatering!
Why Mini Cakes?
And now imagine these Pumpkin Dulce de Leche Mini Cakes all covered in roasted pecans! First, I was thinking to nicely decorate the cakes (Although it’s hard to imagine since I’m not really into declaration). But then I decided that the pecans would be the best decision ever, and they would definitely give a cozy fall look to these little guys.
The last question that you might ask me, why would make mini cakes? Why would waste good food?
I just do like the idea of mini layer cakes (Check also these Dulce de leche Bailey’s Mini Cakes). They look lovely. It’s easy to make them rather than handle all these large layers. And they’re individual. If you eat 2-3 slices of a standard-size cake, you would probably be embarrassed about this fact. No guilt if you have 2 or 3 these Pumpkin Dulce de Leche Mini Cakes. Logic? I don’t know. It just feels this way.
Besides, the leftovers weren’t wasted at all. You can make cake pops or scatter over ice cream. Or like I did…stay tuned – you’ll find out shortly!
But sure this is only a concept, and you can make just a regular layer cake using this idea.
The moral of this story is simple. You need These Pumpkin Dulce de Leche Mini Cakes in your life. Right now. And then around Christmas.
