Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 fifteen-oz. can pumpkin purée
  • 1 egg
  • 1 can vanilla frosting
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • Black frosting tubes
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

    With a big spoon, cream the shortening, sugar, and pumpkin purée in a separate bowl. Add the egg and let kids mix it in.

  3. Step 3
