Autumnal flavours at their best, we were inspired by fig and olive platter and her delicious Pecan upside down cake and added our very own house blend, pumpkin spice, honestly this simple cake is a bit of a showstopper and is fantastic for any occasion. It would make for a delightful dessert at any dinner party.
