Taking on the Treats Truck, One Treat at a Time: Pumpkin Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Pumpkin Cake!
Mmm, pumpkin. We're going to get as much out of you as possible before you go out of season. Though Brownie and I were looking for special holiday treats, one look at the pumpkin cake and it was love at first sight.

So moist, so fluffy, so spicy, so sweet, so delicious. Of all the cake products from the truck, this may be our top choice. The pumpkin cake is perfectly spiced, while the cream cheese frosting wasn't too sweet. This offering has been around since before Thanksgiving (Brownie and I have been VERY busy and unable to do many lunches), and we may have missed it as a cupcake along with the pumpkin swirl cookies (sad face), but there is always next year!! Or tomorrow.

Treats Truck Pumpkin Cake

For those of you in the Financial District, make sure to check the Truck's location on Monday. Kim's bringing it on downtown for her National Brownie Day celebration (today is apparently National Sacher Torte Day and Repeal of Prohibition Day, go figure.)

Keep informed of the truck's location by calling (212) 691-5226, checking their Twitter, or visiting

You know that once we know, you'll know. Then you can feel a part of the cupcone madness!
