How about a mom and dad ghost with a baby ghost?

You could do a pumkin shaped cake and add a sleeping baby on top of the pumpkin. maybe cover the baby with a leaf/vine like a baby blanket. Use a ball pan for the pumpkin, and depending on servings required put that on top of a sheet cake. HTH icon_smile.gif

You could play off the saying "trick or treat" and somehow say it's a treat.

Maybe you could make a pumpkin patch with fondant pumpkins with little babies among the patch. icon_confused.gif

What about a pregnant ghost?
It would be a pretty simple 3-D cake to make, just a little carving and you could cover it in white fondant. Maybe add something pink or blue depending on what the baby is.
This is just a quick sketch I did in paint but its the general idea.

How about something with several pumpkins around with vines and leaves? Put the baby in the middle and write some like "Something special in s pumpkin patch" or "A gift from the pumpkin patch."

My first thought was Casper, the friendly ghost. If you google it you will find lots of pictures in cluding the classic one of him sitting in a chair reading a book called "How to Win Friends." Change that to "Taking Care of Babies." Toss around some baby toys and stuff and a cradle with a tiny ghost baby in it. Casper can be rocking the cradle with his foot.

How fun! I like the pumpkin patch ideas, and you could even do two bundt pans (one inverted on top of the other) to make a big pumpkin, you could do little pumpkin cakes for other pumpkins in the patch (using mini bundt pans). Cover them with orange fondant and give them a green inverted ice cream cone stem. Add some vines and a precious baby. You could even "drape" fondant pumpkin leaves as a blanket or diaper cover. Just brainstorming.

Good Luck, I can't wait to see how it turns out!

I made this one from bundt cakes last year for a babyshower... goes along with the pumpkin idea from above.

You could do the pumpkin with a baby on top but make the baby like a lady bug or a bat (put bat wings on the baby) things u could do with a sleeping baby! Ya know like those popular baby pics with the babies and there naked and on there tummys sleeping and they put like angel wings on them. JUST AN IDEA!! HTH
