hi all, i think i might know how to do this but i was looking in the gallery, is a 9 in pan big enough, or should i use bigger, you stack the cakes, leave the bottom and round out and carve up, then make the indentions, or no narrow the bottom so the middle is fatter, any help please it looks easy but i know it's not thank

I've never done one myself, but I've read that you can also bake 2-bundt cakes and stack them together...with flat sides facing each other. That seems easy enough...who knows... GOod luck! icon_biggrin.gif

This is what I am going to do to make a pumpkin cake for an office party. Seems easy enough as the bundt pans make the lines in the cake for you!

Here is one I did out of round cakes cause I had done the bundt cake twice and wanted a different look. Not all pumpkins are short and squaty. I used different size rounds then carved from there.

I have a pumpkin in my photos that I made for a little girl 2 weeks ago. I stacked an 8", 10", 8" and 6". The carving was only to round out the shape and to carve an indention in the stop. After chilling, I covered it with fondant and immediately used the dogbone (?) gumpaste tool to scribe the lines. So basically, the shape is carved, the details are created in the fondant (learned that from Bronwen Weber). It does have a full buttercream layer on the cake, not just a crumbcoat.

I made one using two bundt cakes back to back. Used rct covered in fondant for stem.
