Can anyone help me with making a pumpkin for the top of a cake? It will be the 3rd tier. I have the William and Sonoma pumpkin pan, should I just use that? I am going to cover it in fondant when I am done, but wasn't sure where to start.
Thank you so much!!!!!

I'm not familiar with the pan, but if it's the right size, go for it! It'll be easier /less messy than carving. icon_smile.gif

How big will the top tier be? I'd take three layers and carve the sides into a pumpkin shape. You could bake two 6" layers and an 8" for the middle layer to help with the rounded shape. Don't forget to carve the lines (indents) down the sides.
