North Carolina Design is adding more yummy delights to the holiday table. This one is a mouth watering pumpkin cake which is brought to us courtesy of Winston-Salem interior designer June Delugas, of June Delugas Interiors. I must confess that I have a sweet tooth, which means that I could easily start the meal with desserts like this and then head for the basics. I can almost smell this cooking in the oven!
