It鈥檚 been a couple weeks since we found out about magic cake, and it鈥檚 safe to say that it is still a hot topic of conversation. A cake with a sponge layer, a custard layer and a fudgy layer 鈥 yes, please! We had to try it out for ourselves, and B+C readers 鈥 we are happy to introduce you to this magical dessert for all your future holiday parties. Your guests will love this the pumpkin magic cake topped with a caramel sauce and sprinkled with our favorite kind of snow 鈥 powdered sugar :)

1. Separate all four eggs 鈥 add the egg whites to a mixer and place egg yolks in a bowl to use later. Mix the egg whites until they form stiff peaks.

Is it just me or does everyone feel satisfaction when separating eggs? Place the four egg whites in the bowl of the mixer and then set the four egg yolks aside to use later.

Next add in the pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon and butter. Note: Make sure your butter is melted! I added it in at room temperature, which might have been the reason I didn鈥檛 get such clean layers.

Fold in the egg whites a third at the time. You don鈥檛 want to break down the egg whites so fold gently.

Our magic cake definitely had the sponge and custard layer, but the fudge layer was a bit iffy. Like I said, this could have been because I forgot to melt the butter 鈥 whoops!
