Pumpkin Sheet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Now that peach season is over, (moment of silence for us mourners), it is time for pumpkin season! Fall is probably my favorite season of the year; I love the cool, crisp air, showers of rain, eerie fog, biking through multicolored forests, and most of all, pumpkins and Halloween. I'm a huge advocate for pumpkin baked goods. Therefore, I present to you Pumpkin Sheet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. It is by far the best pumpkin cake I have ever had, it is exceptionally moist and heavenly. I found this recipe on Eat at Home (thank you!), but tweaked it slightly. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
