Shugary Sweets: Pumpkin Cheesecake Cake

Frosted with cream cheese frosting! So, yes, it is only September and I’ve pulled out the pumpkin. But it had to be done!!! Get my point? Pumpkin is popping up everywhere and I don’t want to be left behind. I already have bad memories from high school as the one without penny loafers. I’ve been watching all my friends day after day post pumpkin recipes. Then something even better happened. I got a text from a friend (HI JOCELYN) saying she was headed out my way.
