Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Thanksgiving Desserts
A holiday dessert spread that covers all our favorite pumpkin and sweet potato thanksgiving desserts! Starting with a Spiced Pumpkin Cake with Brown Sugar Frosting then a Sweet Potato Pie with Maple Marshmallow Topping and ending with a Pumpkin Maple Tart with Spiced Pecan Crust!
I bet you all thought I forgot about Thanksgiving given my recent indulgences into holiday sweets and cold weather food. Case in point these eggnog bourbon cupcakes, homemade peppermint marshmallows and this eggnog pudding cake. Well to be honest, I did not forget Thanksgiving!! I had this spectacular holiday dessert spread planned for today that I knew will cover all of your Thanksgiving day needs.
I mean how could Spiced Pumpkin Cake with Brown Sugar Frosting, Sweet Potato Pie with Maple Marshmallow Topping and Pumpkin Maple Tart with Spiced Pecan Crust not cover all your Thanksgiving dessert? All your basis are covered!!
It’s only fitting I walk you through each of these starting with the cake. A moist, fluffy and spiced pumpkin cake is frosted with a whipped brown butter sugar. For all those cake lovers in your party.
Next the classic sweet potato pie is made elegant with a dreamy cloud of maple sweetened marshmallow topping.
And finally for the die hard pumpkin pie fans in your family (ahem, my FIL), this pumpkin maple tart is packed with all your pumpkin pie must-haves and more with a spiced pecan crust.
All of these Thanksgiving desserts can be made ahead of time (a day or two ahead) to make your entertaining stress-free.
In fact, I am sharing some entertaining tips and the recipes over on the Kitchenthusiast, the KitchenAid blog.

The sweet potato pie looks really good!
I lean more in the sweet potato direction but all of these desserts look amazing!
Well that pie is just for you!!
Ermagawd, Zainab, you’re a baking queen! Look at you and your mad skills – these are three incredible, beautiful, decadent, perfect desserts. I want all of them in front of me, right now. That cake is crazy fluffy ‘n moist, the crust on your pie is perfection, and you can’t go wrong with pumpkin and sweet potato at this time of year.
