Pumpkin Pear Spice Cake includes just a few of my favorite ingredients.

The holidays are a joyous time. Family, friends, holiday parties and get-togethers, delicious food, decadent holiday desserts.

A sheet cake is also a nice alternative to the traditional pumpkin roll or pumpkin pie. It adds a bit of variety, and I'd wager that it's a bit easier or simpler to make too.

I'm looking forward to making this again for Thanksgiving.
