Cool Homemade 3D Halloween Pumpkin Cake

I have never made a cake decorated with fondant before so I found a recipe for marshmallow fondant which sounded good, so I thought I’d give it a try. I got the idea to do a pumpkin cake from this site.

I made it from 2 orange bundt cakes, stacked bottom to bottom. I used buttercream icing that I flavored with orange extract and a little orange juice. Then covered it with MM fondant. Used an ice cream cone for the stem, that I iced with some brown tinted buttercream. I also colored some of the fondant black and freehand cut out the mouth, eyes and nose. I piped a little green buttercream for the leaves, vines and the grass around the bottom of the cake. The spiders are rubber toys.

I’ve just started getting into cake decorating and this is the 3rd cake that I’ve done, first with fondant.
