I am going to use a bundt pan to "attempt" to make a pumpkin shaped cake. I am going to make 2 cakes and frost them together. I have no clue how to frost this and make it look nice...I could try fondant but I like BC better. Any ideas on what I should do to make this look good??? Thank you in advance for you're help!!! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

I did this not too long ago for a 3 year old birthday cake. If I'm not mistaken there is a video out there on youtube of a lady frosting and then fondanting a bundt cake made to resemble a pumpkin. I used hers as a sort of guidline.

I've made a few pumpkins, all buttercream, so it can be done. Just ice like you normally would, smooth the icing, then you can use a dowel rod to help make the ridges in it. icon_smile.gif
