    The sweet potato pie is traditional with the African-American culture. Pumpkin pie is never on the menu. I’m confused by your recipe. It seems to be preparation of a sweet potato cake which is totally different from pie and without some of the ingredients you used. Would you please clarify?

    Title is for sweet potato pie yet under Instructions, you call it a cake. Which is it? Also #8 under instructions mentions using ‘this cream cheese frosting’ yet there is no recipe for it.
