Pumpkin Fudge

Is it bad if I don't make a birthday cake and just make pumpkin fudge instead?

The recipe is from Southern Living and is posted on MyRecipes.

Pumpkin Fudge

What you need:

3 cups sugar
3/4 cup melted butter
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 (12-ounce) package white chocolate morsels
1 (7-ounce) jar marshmallow crème
1 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

What you do:

Stir together first 6 ingredients in a 3 1/2-quart saucepan over medium-high heat, and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil. Cook, stirring constantly, until a candy thermometer registers 234° (soft-ball stage) or for about 12 minutes.

Remove pan from heat; stir in remaining ingredients until well blended. Pour into a greased aluminum foil-lined 9-inch square pan. Let stand 2 hours or until completely cool; cut fudge into squares.

My sister-in-law has some great mini Halloween cookie cutters that I could use to cut this into really fund shapes! She uses them to make croutons for the Halloween salad. I will have to see if I can get a picture of them!

Halloween shaped croutons for a Halloween salad? I love it! Maybe you could roll out the pumpkin fudge really thin and then use cookie cutters to decorate a cake with the fudge? Eh... I don't know, just a thought.
