Dice baguette into 1/2" pieces and place on a sheet pan. Bake in a 250º oven for 8 minutes to dry out.
Place cream in a sauce pot and bring to a low simmer.
In a large mixing bowl combine pumpkin, eggs, corn syrup, sugar, vanilla, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Whip to blend all ingredients well. Slowly add the warm cream and the dry bread, mix well. Allow to sit at room temperature for 5 minutes.
Spread butter inside 5- 12oz. coffee cups, then coat with sugar. Evenly fill each cup so that it is filled to 1/2" from the top of the cup.
Place cups in a 2" deep baking pan and fill the pan with one inch of water. Bake in a 325º oven for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out dry. Allow to cool for 5 minutes, then invert the cup to remove the bread pudding.
Place 1 1/2 oz. orange crème anglaise in the center of a 9" plate. Squirt caramel sauce in a spiral design in the anglaise. Using a Toothpick, make a web design. Set the bread pudding on top of the sauce with the crusted side facing up and top with a dollop of of whipped cream.
