Hi, I'm a teacher (currently on maternity leave) and our school is having its annual Fall Festival. My grade level always does a cake walk and this year I've been asked to make the cake for it (yippee!). It's on November 1st, so after Halloween, but pretty far out from Thanksgiving. I want a cake that will appeal to the kids (as they are the ones who will get to pick the cake most likely), but that looks great and shows off my newly developing talent. Any ideas? Also, any ideas on flavors? I thought about pumpkin flavor, but afraid it won't really appeal to the kids. Thanks so much for all of your ideas!
What about making a hayride wagon?
Pumpkins or a scarecrow as a decoration.
Definitely multicolored leaves in brown and orange or orange and yellow.
For flavors, I suggest Duncan Hines Swiss chocolate. (kids love chocolate)
Regular buttercream or cream cheese frosting.....
If I come up with any other ideas, I'll post again!
Big basket of leaves? Spice cake with apple filling? Or kid favorite... white vanilla with cookies and cream filling
yumm! Those sound great...keep the ideas coming friends...can't decide yet
When I think of fall festival....carnivals come to mind. Maybe something like a state-fair theme. Popcorn, cotton candy, caramel apples, tickets. I saw a cake that would be perfect on here once, maybe I can find it again.
You could do the "Kit-Kat" cake w/the candy bars wrapped around the outside to make a barrel. Fill that w/fondant apples & fall leaves. Wrap a fall colored ribbon around it as a bow.
Pumpkin-chocolate cake is a super yummy option.
