Has any one ever been asked this? A friend of mine ask me to make a cake for her daughter its her first birthday she wants a Pumpkin Theme NOT Halloween I am having a problem coming up with something really cute please help any ideas are welcome
Ann Getties (sp?) -- she makes babies in many fruit and veg ; very cute ideas. Do a google search for ideas.
I looked up Ann Getties but could not find anything would you happen to have a website
Anybody have ideas or pictures
Here's a line:
I was wrong on the spelling it's Geddes
I googled images "Ann Geddes baby"......this line is on pg 9 or 10.
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.
Thank You I'll check out the William Sonoma and Wiltons book
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.
Cute ideas Thank You
We were just talking about this same theme in another forum:
Saw this cute Figure by Aine2:
Your phrase could say HAPPY BIRTHDAY PUMPKIN!
Thank You that is so cute I'd like to know the other forum maybe their are more ideas I can read about, The birthday cake I'm make is for a little girl mom doesn't want the face on the pumpkin but she does want the fall colors and a pumpkin patch or pumpkin carriage Thank you for all your help. at first I really didn't want to make this cake but now with all the wonderful ideas I'm getting excited Thanks to All My CC Friends you guys ROCK!
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
Thank You all so much I will be making the Pumpkin Patch cake on the weekend of the 10th of October and will post a picture before I hand it over to the birthday girl
