Three layers of rich pumpkin and espresso cake filled with espresso cream cheese frosting and topped with cinnamon nutmeg whipped cream make this decadent Pumpkin Spice Latte Layer Cake the perfect Fall cake!
Finally, Starbucks has brought the Pumpkin Spice Latte to Deutschland! After years and years of success in the USA… the coffee company finally came to their senses and is not serving the super popular Fall drink in stores around the world now!
I’ve lived in Germany for almost three years now and each Fall season, I’ve been so sad to have to go with out my PSL. BUT… not this year! YAY! Rachel and I made a special trip to Nurnberg just to get a PSL (and so some shopping). It was soooo worth the hours drive!
This cake is my dedication to the Starbucks drink I love so much… layer upon layer of pumpkin spice latte cake filled with espresso cream then topped with a mound of fresh whipped cream garnished with ground cinnamon and nutmeg and fresh cinnamon sticks!
I brought this cake to a potluck where it was the star on the dessert table. When it was time for dessert, everyone was a buzz about wanting a piece of my cake. After slicing into it, the aroma of the spices, pumpkin and coffee wafted over me. My first bite was a piece of cake and espresso cream…
Oh. My. Goodness.
I could not believe how incredibly moist the cake was and how well the espresso cream paired with the flavors of the cake. Not one over-powered the other and they worked in perfect harmony with one another. Next was a bite of the whipped cream on top with cake and espresso cream. The slightly sweet whipped cream was perfect… seriously perfect.
One person told me it tasted like eating your favorite pumpkin pie while drinking a chai tea latte. Spices, pumpkin and coffee. Pure perfection. This cake is definitely on my MUST BAKE LIST for every Fall season… and maybe again this year!
Each bite of this cake was a delicious reminder of why I love Fall… and why I love Starbucks! YUM!
