Welcome to Cake Central.

What ever you try, remember that it is only cake. As long as you select a cake and icing you like, even if it turns out "less that beautiful" it will still taste great

Since it is your first decorated cake, I would do something simple, yet elegant.

For a fall/Thanksgiving theme, you could frost a cake in chocolate icing with chocolate shell borders then place silk fall covered leaves on the top and maybe draping down the sides.

I don't know your skill level, so I don't know how much to help with. Have you already learned the basics using the decorating tips and bags? Or will you be self-teaching yourself throughout this specific experience?

Another fun and easy idea would be to attach kit-kat bars to the outside of the cake and fill the top of the cake with the candy pumpkins and candy corn.
