My sister and her husband were coming down to visit for Thanksgiving. So, I decided that I would make a Pumpkin Cake for the season.
I used two pumpkin spice cake mixes and made two bundt cakes. After they had cooled, I had poured spiced rum over each cake. Then I iced them and put them on each other to make the pumpkin shape. I then covered sections with large pieces of orange marshmallow fondant and then made orange fondant logs to give the pumpkin texture. I used water and then end of a paint brush to smooth the creases.
I then took an ice cream cone and covered it with brown fondant and then scored it to make it look like wood. I then sprinkled it with gold glitter dust and placed on the top of the cake.
I then mixed several fall colors together and then cut out leaves. I took the leftover brown fondant and shaped 3 acorns and garnish and it turned out better than I thought it was going to.
I got rave reviews! My candle cake is also on this website under Miscellaneous cakes.
