I served this cake up last weekend when we had a socially distanced neighborhood gathering on our patio.  I provided pulled pork and this cake.  Frank provided cocktails and everyone else brougt a dish to pass.

It was a gorgeous day out and we took advantage of it.  I figure this will be the last deck gathering of the season.  This cake was the perfect ending to a great day.

Adding some festive Halloween sprinkles makes the cake perfect for an October gathering or for you to serve up to your family as a Halloween treat.
