I'm Jack The Pumpkin King & I just can't wait until next Halloween.....Pumpkin Cake!!


Sometimes messes turn into things of beauty. No seriously it does happen! My series of cake decorating classes instructed by my Mom has been such a delight. Making the icing, using food coloring for the different colors, using the tools to make beautiful things out of pretty much nothing. This week was no exception. We made my mom’s classic Pumpkin Cake. When I was lil she used to make this for me to bring to the school Halloween parties. It’s a masterpiece. 

Want a learn how? It’s actually pretty easy. With a few simple things you can create your own pumpkin cake for upcoming parties. (Quick reminder: get a professional camera). I’m going to list what you need & then do a photo demo. Here it goes:

What you need:
1.)    2 Bundt Cakes
2.)    1 paper towel role
3.)    1 Ice Cream Cone
4.)    Orange, Brown, & Green Icing
5.)    Time & Patience
6.)    Icing Decorating Bags & Tips

 
 

 
Well there you have it! It’s amazing how it actually all comes together. I’m going to make one for my friend’s Halloween party next week! I hope you enjoyed this quick cake post! Happy Baking!!

Please love the fact that "Pumpkin" is the most common used word on my blog. You can't go 3 posts without seeing a picture of one.
