Now, when I say "mine," I don't mean I made the recipe. I mean I found it online, brought it to a function, and people raved about it.
It may have gone to my head.
I thought I'd share with you the recipe in step-by-step instructions!

- 1 & 1/2 - 2 tsp. cinnamon*
- 1/2 tsp. ground ginger*
- 1/2 tsp. ground clove*
- 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg*
- 1 c. pumpkin puree

*in place of these spices, you can use 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, if you prefer
- 1 block (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 c. butter (half of a stick), softened
- 1 cup powdered sugar

Cream the butter and cream cheese first, then add the powdered sugar, then add the vanilla. Spread the frosting all over the cake from end to end and re-roll it up lengthwise. Store in the fridge in plastic wrap or foil.
There you have it, simple as pie! Well, simple as pumpkin roll. ;)
