Pumpkin Chiffon C

This Pumpkin Chiffon Cake is to show my support for this month Little Thumps Up Oct 2014 hosted by Eileen from Eileendiary. This morning I was busy in the office and till now then got time to update my post. For this chiffon, I am using Butternut Pumpkin and I like the fact that it taste sweeter and more juicy too.
