The 2009 wilton book has some cute ideas with their 3d pumkin pan. They turned it in to a carriage . Its pretty cute.

You could bake two bundt cakes. Put the one upside down for the bottom of the pumpkin and put the other on top for the top of the pumpking. Add a stem, leaves, tendrils. If you are good with fondant figures, a little mouse peeking out from behind or just maybe he got inside the pumpkin would be cute! Williams-Sonoma has a picture of a cake that looks like this idea in their current catalog. You can likely see it online at their site.

IF you are good with Fondant, why don't you do a pumpkin patch with a baby holding a either a pumpkin, or a 1? Also could do the 3D pumpkin, and instead of the steam make the #1 in place of it.?

Personally i love this cake:

Or how about a pumpkin patch with a baby hiding in the middle looking over one of the pumpkins.

Your phrase could say HAPPY BIRTHDAY PUMPKIN!

My mom (CakeRN) did a pumkin cake for my nephews first birthday, she has the picture uploaded here on CC. She also did a red wagon with little pumpkins (cake balls covered with chocolate), there is a picture of this cake as well. You should check them out maybe they will give you an idea to expand upon or at least a place to start.

I just love the one with the mice coming out of the pumpkin.... Have you seen it? It is after the decorator.... Brown. Can't think of her first name right now.... put pumpkin mice in the search here...

It's Debbie Brown. If you check out her excellent website there are lots of pictures of the cakes in her books, it might be among them. Good luck xx

Yes, yes Debbie Brown! Thank you. I had a brain glitch. Here is a picture of one done by LolaT on here. It 's adorable.

google "pumpkin mice" on CC and choose to look at more pictures. There are a few....
