How To: Make a Pumpkin Cake That Looks Like the Real Thing

Photo by Molly Dunn
Don't just carve pumpkins this Halloween; bake a pumpkin cake.
No, this is not a cake that tastes like pumpkin. It's a cake that looks like a pumpkin. Anyone who knows me knows I love to make cakes and sweets, so when I saw that it was possible to make a pumpkin-shaped cake with a Bundt pan, I immediately decided to give it a whirl.

For those of you who don't like to get your hands dirty from carving pumpkins, or for parents who don't want their children using sharp objects, this is a fun, alternative way to celebrate the Halloween season -- plus you get something sweet once you're done.

"Looks like the real thing?"  Someone is a little too proud of their handiwork.  And you need to use a fluted Bundt pan.  That is just a hot mess.


Lol that's exactly what I was going to say. I'm sure it tastes fine but this could look so much better.
