pumpkin cake with apple cider glaze

Kirst’s post yesterday about faking fall was so spot on. In case you’re new here (or have just forgotten), Kirst lives on a tropical island and I (Jord) live in the Middle East, so fall isn’t much of a “thing” either of us get to partake in. We totally compensate for the lack of changing [...]
