So I have officially caught the pumpkin bug! I could bake year round with pumpkin if it was seasonally acceptable (which I’m sure no one would balk at that) but I know a few people who would give the weird side eye if I whipped out a nice big pumpkin pie during our 4th of July get together. And yes, that is something I would totally do. Why you ask, well because I can!

Now another bug has been caught in my house, and unfortunately this one is of the bad variety. My kids are getting sick again. Boo. You know when school starts around this house because people become ill within the first 2 weeks. I’m starting to miss summer break already. No sicky germs to really worry about, and I usually catch everything my kids get so I’m not looking forward to any of it. Especially since I do daycare for a little baby! Let’s hope and pray that this passes quickly and maybe just maybe our bodies are just fooling us and its the weather change causing the coughs and sniffles. A girl can only hope!

Salted Caramel Frosting

You guys know my love of wandering the Walmart aisles just perusing my heart away. Well look what I found myself a little while back. Yup, salted caramel frosting! This stuff was awesome. And in light of Culver’s coming out with their Salted Caramel Concrete Mixer I figured I’d give it a go at topping this perfect roll with this its amazing counterpart! Have you seen that little trick that’s been around for a while now where you heat up your frosting and pour it and it becomes a glaze? Whelp my friends, that’s what this old gal did to this! Turned out great if you ask me. So much easier to frost!

So anyways, on to this pumpkin roll. I’m a cake roll fan. I love being able to have multiple layers of frosting but not have to worry about making a layer cake. And you can pretty much create any flavor combinations that you could think of. Red velvet and carrot are high on my list of favorites! Sadly I haven’t made carrot cake dessert yet this year! I don’t know what is wrong with me, my 7-year-old absolutely loves carrot cake too! So this may still happen, like I said I’m very untraditional and random weird things will pop up in my kitchen at the most random times. But I’m so happy that it’s finally fall so I can make pumpkin everything! Is it too early for gingerbread?

  1. This looks amazing! I love the salted caramel glaze. Now I really want to do a pumpkin roll cake this fall too. Unfortunately my list of things I want to make and the time I have to make them don’t always match!

  2. I’m so with you on pumpkin everything! It’s never too early. We are pumpkin people year-round here 🙂 And I love how absolutely scrumptious this cake looks – just beautiful! And P.S. I have 2 little ones in preschool so I totally feel your back-to-school sickness pain… UGH! 😉 XXOO

  3. This looks outstanding – I’ve only ever done roll ups at Christmas and now I have an excuse to do one now! I can’t wait to give it a try – I’d love it if you’d come share this with the Awesome Life Friday link up.

    1. Haha Cristine I get so nervous when I have to roll it cut or fold and cakes so I’m thankful when things turn out for me. Sometimes the ugliest things taste the best, have had my fair share of those!! And this frosting omg yes I have to stock up while it’s still available. It’s not in the seasonal section so hopefully with salted caramel being a thing they will keep it around!
