You could make a half circle template...like two 2-3 inches high...and cut until that fits the top//I saw someone do that on tv....I am going to use a metal bowl with a baking core in the center myself

you mean to put the template on the side of the cake and cut to the height of the template?

That's a very cute cake, sweetcakes.
I saw it on the main website.
I don't go on facebook, as I just don't trust it to be clean... Do you find any problems with it?

If you are planning on covering with fondant, using bundt cake pans make an easy go of it. I just stacked 2 bundt cakes, one upside down, iced good with butter cream then covered with fondant. use a small dowel to make to indent your pumpkin lines, then work with your fingers to add the texture. After that, just paint it orange with watered down gel coloring.

Here is a picture of how mine turned out. Let me know if you have any questions. Good luck!
