for those of you who need an easy fall cake without the carving. Level two bundt cakes and glue together with buttercream, tada instant shaped pumpkin. Williams & Sonoma also has a nifty pumpkin pan but it's a bit pricey. Add a fondant stem and a few leaves and you're good to go. Just my small contribution to the site for the day. icon_smile.gif

That sounds like a really cute idea. Do you have a picture of that? I'll have to try it later in the season. Thanks!

I did that last year for our cakewalk at our church's fall festival. It turned out great! I also did a glaze...can't remember the exact recipe, but it was cream cheese, pwd sugar, lemon juice, milk, i think...then I just used orange and a little yellow coloring to get the "pumpkin" color. Put it on a cooling rack which was on top of a sheet pan and poured the glaze over it. It coated really well and looked even more like a pumpkin the drier the glaze got. And since it was a glaze, the form of the bundt pan still came through really well - a frosting would have covered it up too much. Fondant stem and curly-q vines were added to it. I was actually a little impressed with myself at how realistic is was...lol icon_razz.gificon_rolleyes.gif And it really was super simple. Oh - I used spice cake too....yummy.

I did not do this but loved it and saved it to my files, it is the 2 bundt cakes together, a cupcake for the stem with fondant accents I believe.

Here is one I did a couple of years ago. Used two bundt pans, an ice cream cone for the stem and a straw to make the ridges on the sides. Used an airbrush to color it.
