This seasonal cake starts with roasted spaghetti squash, which is an unbelievable and underrated ingredient in baked goods. The squash is baked into the cake to make something better than carrot cake. The cake is layered with a vanilla diplomate cream (pastry cream folded with whipped cream) and fine layer of feuilletine (little crunchy bits of baked crepe), Valrhona Dulcey chocolate, pumpkin seeds, and pumpkin seed oil. This is my go-to winter season spice cake!

5 Stars
AMAZING. Would eat again any day - perfect spice cake flavor, squash added a nice heartiness, frosting was not overly sweet, and the bottom layer of crunch really pulled this whole dish together.
5 Stars
Wonderful little dessert. Sweet enough to satisfy, with a hint of spice, and just enough veggie taste to convince you it's healthy :)
