    Just wondering, when mixing the cake mix with the pumpkin, are you adding any other required cake mix ingredients (oil, eggs, water, etc)? Or are you just doing the dry cake mix ingredients with just the pumpkin? I am going to try this tonight ? I got a spice cake mix to try it with, figured the spice flavored and the pumpkin will mix well!
