Pumpkin Cream Cheese Dump Cake


Pumpkin filling, then the cream cheese piped out of a little plastic bag to get an even layer (don’t worry about making it pretty, you won’t be able to tell after it’s baked!). Pour the cake mix over, poke holes (not pictured), pour butter and then top with cinnamon sugar (not pictured). Then bake! Just like traditional pumpkin pie, this dessert tastes better cold and even better the next day because the flavors get more intense! So it’s really a perfect dessert to make the day before :) Top it off with some whipped cream and you’re set! I actually used 1 pint of whipping cream and whipped it with 1/2 a package of hershey’s white chocolate instant pudding mix. This keep the whipped cream stiff and it never melts making a mess
