It was Cade's birthday today. We had a party for him Saturday, but we always celebrate on the actual day too. On a normal birthday, I ask if the children want a special breakfast meal or a supper meal. Ryan always, always wants homemade cinnamon rolls.
Cade wanted something different. So, I agreed to come up with a new dessert.
As I got thinking about what to make, the idea came to me. Sort of out of the blue and then it kept building. Pumpkin cream bundt cake with caramel drizzle would have everything he would like in it. Pumpkin flavors, cheesecake flavors, caramel, chocolate chips and cake-several desserts baked into one amazing dessert, fit for birthday boy.

How To Make Pumpkin Cream Bundt Cake with Caramel Drizzle
First, you bake the cake according to package directions. Then you let the cake cool and turn it out of the pan. Cut the cake in half.
Then you mix the pumpkin pie pudding and cheesecake pudding with two cups of milk and whisk for 1-2 minutes until thickened.
Next you fold in 1 cup whipped cream into the pudding.
Then, spread the pudding/Cool Whip mixture on the bottom layer of cake.
Carefully place the top layer of cake on the bottom layer. Then frost with the remaining Cool Whip, chocolate chips and almonds. Drizzle with caramel.
