Just got a request today for a vomiting pumpkin cake for a groom's cake. Ewww, but whatever. I know most of you use bundt pans to make a 3D pumpkin, but they only want 20 servings, so what would be the best way to make this pumpkin? Stacking rounds and carving? Or is there a smaller bundt pan that anyone knows of?

Why not just use a Wilton 3D pumpkin pan..It only feeds about 20 or so...I bought mine a few years back.It makes a nice pumpkin.

Do you have a minimum for a carved cake like that? Wouldn't the regular bundt fall into that range? It seems like buying new pans for the cake would kill profit more than using a larger cake for this one time.

I was looking at that on different sites since it's retired and was wondering how many it served. Thanks for the suggestion icon_smile.gif

That is so funny! I saw one of those just two days ago when I was looking something else up on here. I love it! I hope you share pics when it is done!

I don't mind buying a new pan because I think a cake like that would likely bring in more business. Plus that I'm a total cake pan collector, LOL! I'm thinking about stacking round cakes and using 1/2 of the Wilton sports ball pan on top and carving from there.

Here is one I did carved from round cake pans. The pan sizes I used were 2 6x2 rounds, 1 7x1 round and 1 8x3 round. Not counting for a little being carved off, those sizes would make around 45 servings. I'd probably round it down, a little to maybe 35-40.

I'm not sure you'll be able to get a small cake, and sometimes that's okay. Just tell them for the shape/design to look right the cake will have to serve XYZ number of people and give them a price. They can decide what to do from there.
