I need a great pumpkin cake recipe that will hold up to torting and fondant. Stacked wedding cake. I looked in the recipes but most seem like they are bundt cakes and that won't work.

Are you a scratch baker or from a mix?

There's some really good ones online, like Allrecipes and stuff like that...just look for one with a high rating.

I'm typically from scratch, but at this point I'll try anything.

I have a great one that I make from scratch that I found on the internet last fall. Don't know if it'll hold up to fondant or not as I just started doing that this summer. If you want it, just email or PM me.

This is my favorite...

2 cups white sugar
1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups canned pumpkin
4 eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 12x18 inch pan. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a large bowl combine sugar and oil. Blend in vanilla and pumpkin, then beat in eggs one at a time. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Spread batter into prepared 12x18 inch pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool.

i don't know if this was addressed to me or not, but i'll go ahead and answer like it was LOL

yes, it will hold up under fondant, never had an issue with it, made it many times and always with fondant!
