I am looking for a little help. I am making a pumpkin cake for a set of cousins, boy and a girl both turning 2, in October. The parents are doing their joint party at the pumpkin patch and want a pumpkin cake. I have looked through the galleries and everything looks like halloween. Any one have any cute childrens looking pumpkin cake pics? I want to give the mothers a few to choose from.

If your looking for a graphic to use on the cake, try Google images http://images.google.com
put in pumpkin and you should get some cute ones.
here is one: http://www.gardenandhearth.com/ZZ-GHIMAGES/Homeschool-Activites/cute_pumpkin-300.jpg

It could also serve as idea for a 3-d version.

This one is really cute! Maybe if you did 2 teddy bears instead of a teddy bear & a frog?

I noticed a pumpkin princess carriage and then another pumpkin cake in the 2009 Wilton Yearbook you might get ideas from.

Look also for Fall cakes instead of Pumpkin cakes. You might get some great ideas that way. I found the following 3 with a google search for Fall Pumpkin Cake

Good luck, I can't wait to see what you decide to do.

Here is a cake that I made for Thanksgiving. You could always make it fancier, but it can give you a basic outline for a cake. The stem was an upside down ice cream cone, and I used to bundt cakes put together to make the pumpkin shape. I hope this helps.

I made this pumpkin patch cake for a party a couple of years ago. It's a fall theme. You could always personalize and add things that the kids like to it.

Try using 2 bundt cakes staked on top of each other to give it the pumpkin shape. Then use a cleaned out soup can for make the stem. Cover in orange fondant. I've done it in the past and used orange icing, brown icing for the stem and cut up Hershey bars for the face. Good luck!

I have made a pumpkin cake before with the two bundt pans. The pick is in my photos. I just don't want to give them a pumpkin! I want it to be a 3-d pumpkin just something a little more imaginative! the little boy is my nephew and his cousin from the other side is the little girl. I am also good friends with her mother. They are both turning two so I want something special.

I love the mice cake!! I can soooo see making that one and putting a little bow on one of them to make a girl!!

Hi, there is a pumpkin patch cake in my photos also with two mice that I did for my daughter and her friend's 3 rd birthday. Keep in mind it was my first stacked cake lol. I used a lot of ideas from gingerbread houses for the baskets etc.

My vote is for the 2 mice cake, the mice can represent the children, this is too cute! Or think of a fairy tale, Peter Peter Pumkin Eater, or a fairy and an elf, use the pumkin as the base cake and incorpaorate some sort of fairy tale story characters to represent the children. They love that sort of stuff.

Oh, that mice cake is just TOO CUTE!!! I think that would make an adorable birthday cake in a pumpkin patch! And I like your idea of putting a bow on one of the mice!

OH OH! And it would really be cute to have pumpkin vines "spelling" out the birthday boy and girl names with the little candy pumpkins coming off of the vines! Now that would be so cute!
