Pumpkin Spice Cake with Chocolate Snickers Ganache

….and we have more pumpkins!  I wasn’t making it up when I said that I went a little over-board with pumpkin this season and this Pumpkin Spice Cake is simply over-the-top amazing.   This is perfect for after Halloween too, you can cut up left-over candy bars to crumble over the chocolate ganache.

The cake is spiced and not too sweet which pairs nicely with the semi-sweet chocolate glaze but the sweetness comes in with the snickers and caramel drizzle.  It’s pretty perfectly balanced as far as texture and flavour goes, I can’t imagine a more perfect pumpkin cake.
