So I've seen pictures all over the internet for a pumpkin-shaped cake using two bundt cakes put together. My question is, can I use the extra egg and pudding mix additions to a cake mix for this type of cake? Will it be too heavy or TALL? I already have 2 boxes of Pillsbury Halloween Funfetti cake, and on the box there are instructions for the cake, but prepared as normal without the additions. Help! icon_sad.gif

I almost always use the extra egg and pudding mix (except when I make more drastic additions!), and it worked fine for the pumpkin cakes my dh and I did last year. It's definitely not too heavy, and I don't notice much difference in height with or without the extra egg and pudding mix.

ooohhhh, is that how those pumpkins cakes are made?? using bundt pans?

is there another way to make them if you don't have a bundt pan?

So it's okay to add pudding to a BC or Pillsbury mix that already has pudding? My concern is that it would be too moist and gooey.

I usually do it with Duncan Hines, but have also used BC without any problems. (I don't use Pillsbury after several flops--using the box directions.)

tmt--you can also bake in pyrex or stainless steel bowls. In that case, you have to do a little cutting to shape the half-spheres.

I did one using round cake pans. I used a 6in, 7in and 8 in, and cut the 6 and 7 in half and stacked them 6, 7, 8, 7, 6. From there I carved them more into the shape I wanted them.
