i have a can of pumpkin and a white-cake mix..what can i do??

i know, its not pumpkin-season..but my mom's bday is tomorrow, and she's not fond of cake, but does enjoy a slice of pound cake. i'm thinking of using the bundt pan, for looks..and just a slight glazing or sprinkling of powdered sugar.
any ideas on making this cake less..box?? (i'm avoiding a grocery-run, and no, i don't have any pudding or apple sauce in the cupboards!)

  • Take the cake mix, pumpkin, 2/3rd cup water and about 1 - 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie mix (or some cinamon & nutmeg) and mix it all together. It will make about 24 muffins or 48 mini muffins. ( i think it will work for the bundt cake pan too) sprinkle your powder sugar on it or glaze it. ..
