Pumpkin is the new chocolate …

Pumpkin Spice Cake with Red Walnuts on LouiseMellor.com_40 is the new 30

Spanx are the new girdle

Kate is the new Diana

Is Kris Jenner the new June Cleaver ?

Justin Bieber is the new Elvis

Is that Carl’s Jr girl the new Marilyn Monroe ?

I’ve been 40 for 2 years now and it’s not the new 30 … it’s better.   Kate is cute but I love Diana.  Kris Jenner, not so much,  June had style and class.

I’ve baked 2 of these cakes in a week, so I will gladly keep the Spanx and to that add ….

Pumpkin is the new chocolate and red is the new brown … red walnuts that is.

Pumpkin Spice Cake with Red Walnuts on LouiseMellor.com_Everything tastes better in a Bundt pan and this tasty treat is no exception.  The texture is so creamy and light, but loaded with sweet- pumpkin-spice-goodness.    A little maple cream cheese frosting  never hurt anyone and I needed it to make the walnuts stick to the top like little ruby gemstones.  The organic red walnuts are from Melissa’s produce and are available at Bristol Farms, I bought them because I fell in love with the color, but the flavor is extraordinary.  They are a must try for the season!
