After using my Martha Stewart collection pumpkin cake pan to make mini mochi pumpkin cakes, I wanted to use it again because it’s such a cute pan.  So I made some mini pumpkin cakes.

These were small, cute, and tasty. I love the little pumpkin shapes. The pan has been working out great. The cakes slide right out.

These molds are perfect for presenting simple cakes. I baked a bunch of mini pumpkin cakes to give to relatives over the Thanksgiving weekend and everyone seemed to like them.
