I have been seeing a lot of pumpkin cakes with the 2 bundt pans placeed together and was curious after you place them together are they easy to frost to give them that "pumpkin" look with the BC??? I just think is it difficult to get in between the spaces? I sometimes struggle to get a clean look on a basic round cake with only BC, let a lone a "pumpkin". I have not tried a square cake, I figure first thing is first, master the round then move to the next shape, lol. Anyone who has done the pumpkin cake, I tip my hat off to you, it looks difficult!!!!

I think it depends on what kind of look you want. Really, icing it is just like icing any cake unless you want to use the ridges for your pumpkin ridges and make it smooth. I've done one before and just iced it using the lines from icing it as the pumpkin ridges.
dont forget there's also a 3d pumpkin pan set also out there. directions call for a pound cake to be used with this pan though.
I attempted the 3d pumpkin cake for the first time a couple weeks ago. I've never worked with fondant so I covered mine in buttercream. I think it turned out pretty good. I donated the cake for a bake sale and we sold chances to win it. Everyone was pretty excited about it.
The lady that won it, it was actually her granddaughter's birthday so she was really happy.
Give the pumpkin cake with two bundt cakes a shot. I thought it was much easier than I feared it would be. I used the chocolate pumpkin cake recipe by bmoore (found on this website).
My pumpkin cake photo is in my gallery:
Yeah, I really want to try it...everyone on here that has done one, makes it look soooooooo awesome!!! I loved yours by the way, it was 2 cute!!! I am really looking forward to doing one, I am hoping to do so after Halloween. Sincerely, Veronica
PS Has anyone ever done it with the one bowl glaze recipe? Where you take Cook Whip and Candy Melts and just drizzle it on enough to cover the cake? I was thinking about doing that, but thought to ask before I attempt it.
That cake is great (too bad he was stabbed ).
