I need to do a pumpkin cake, but not large enough to use 2 bundt pans.
Any suggestions on an easy way to get that shape?
Use the Wilton sports ball pan. It's not that big.
A couple of years ago I took different size round cakes and carved them into a pumpkin-ish shape. Since pumpkins come in all different shapes and sizes you have some play room.
Ive used the bundt pans.. and to make it "smaller" I cut out about 2" from the ring and then put the "circle" back together - it does two things, 1) makes a smaller pumpkin and 2) takes the hole out of the middle
