Halloween Pumpkin Shaped Cake

Halloween Pumpkin-Shaped Cake

I've always liked making Halloween cake recipes, and this fun pumpkin-shaped one is no exception. It's really easy, too, because you use boxed cake mix, like Betty Crocker, and decorate pretty much however you want to. It's always a hit in our family. Let the kids help decorate and you'll all have a ball!

Ingredients
  • 2 recipes any cake recipe or 2 boxes cake mix, prepared
  • 2 recipes white frosting or 2 cans white frosting or more
  • orange, green and black food coloring
Instructions
  1. Prepare two cakes in bundt pans, plus one cupcake.
     
  2. Cool completely.
     
  3. Color most of the frosting a deep orange, reserving about 1/2 cup, which should be colored black (or you may use dark chocolate fudge frosting), also reserving a couple of tablespoons to tint green and frost the cupcake.
     
  4. Place one bundt cake upside down (rounded side on the bottom) on cake plate; frost top only.
     
  5. Place second bundt cake flat-side down on top of first cake.
     
  6. Frost entire cake with orange frosting, making up and down motions with spatula to simulate pumpkin.
     
  7. Insert green frosted cupcake in the middle of the top of the bundt cake to make the stem.
     
  8. Use black frosting to make eyes, nose, mouth, etc.  Black rope licorice may also be used.
     
  9. You can use leftover chocolate crumbs, chocolate jimmies or crushed chocolate cookies to sprinkle around the cake on the platter to resemble soil.
Notes
  • I tried the pumpkin patch cake last year and got rave reviews! The only thing different is that I used a regular ice cream cone for the stem of the pumpkin (covered with frosting) and I colored coconut an orange-brown color and scattered it around the bottom of the cake. Also, I used candy corn and licorice to make the face.
     
  • Remember that you can do the same cake for Thanksgiving, just leave off the face!
