I keep seeing these cute pumpkin cakes in the galleries. I am assuming you use a bundt pan somehow. Can anyone give instructions and tell me if it can be done with buttercream? Thanks!
I think all you do is use two bundt bakes - bottom one upside down and the other on top. Don't see any reason why you couldn't use buttercream with these - just need some patience to work the curves of the bundt.
Do you fill in the middle with something? I assume the stem has to sit on something for support?
I used two bundt cakes like stated above. As for the stem I used an ice cream cone covered with green BC.
That is pretty much it, one bundt upside down, and one right side up on top of it. I dont usually torte mine, cause it makes it harder to cover with fondant. I just put a little bit of filling in between the two layers. I also use some bamboo skewers in order to keep the two aligned, and to prevent sliding.
I use a blob of fondant for the stem, and then add some vines and leaves. But like the PP said, you can cover a flat bottomed ice cream cone with icing/fondant and use that upside down, jammed in that hole.
There isnt a lot too it. Yell if you need more help.
