I saw a really cute cake on CC and the pumpkins were stacked 3 high looking like they were just sitting on top of each other... Does anyone know how to do this. Said they used a ball pan to bake so the pumpkins are all round...??? icon_biggrin.gif

Looks like they used a stand of some sort or used a wedge then covered it. But here are some stands and two posts that I had come across, when I was looking something up similiar to your topic HTH.

Do you think they used the half ball soccer pan or the small little ball pan? They look bigger than that ball pan I have so Im wondering.. Unless there is a bigger ball pan I do not know of yet.... lol I would to try and do that for my son's class party, I think the kids would love it. Thanks for asking the question!!

yeah it is really a cute cake to do, if we can figure it out LOL I wonder if you could make a bunch of half ball pans, since those are bigger, and put them all together? I was thinking about doing that then maybe only doing three pumpkins instead. Or maybe three large pumpkins then the small ball pan for the fourth pumpkin idk just throwing things out. Good Luck and I hope it works out for you!!

I did a graveyard, pumpkin, ghost cake each was carved and stacked on top of the next. The best thing to use for pumpkins is a bundt pan. It already has the ridges in it just like a pumpkin. lol
