Super Easy Pumpkin Bundt Cake w/ Cream Cheese Frosting

we all love a good shortcut in life, whether it be a walk home, skipping commercials or a kitchen hack. truthfully for me, i like walking, don't mind commercials, but i find myself time to time enjoying a good kitchen shortcut.
coming off of Rowan's birthday weekend, i found myself with an extra box of cake mix leftover in my pantry(yes this blogger prefers cake mixes to doing it by scratch...don't judge) and with the chilly temperatures outside, i decided to jazz up that white cake mix with warming spices and pumpkin puree to make a seasonally appropriate pumpkin bundt cake.
  if you remember a couple weeks back i tackled a scrumptious pumpkin bread, since the family demolished it, i thought it time to once again fill my house with all the delicious fall aromas.
this cake couldn't be easier, it's light and fluffy and might just be better than that homemade bread last month.
cheers, xo.
