Pumpkin Patch Cake
(Van Buren, ARKANSAS , USA)
This pumpkin patch cake was for my Aunt. Since she has a fall birthday I thought pumpkins would be fitting.
I made 2 bundt cakes. I spooned out just enough of the batter to make mini-bundt cakes, which are almost as big as a cupcake.
After cooking, cooling and leveling, I iced between layers. I used the icing in a can and colored it orange.
I read on several websites that that is the way they did it.
Well, my advice is, DO NOT USE CANNED ICING!
It was as runny as soup. I added 1 lb. of powdered sugar and some meringue powder and it didn't help.
Just traveling in the car the big pumpkin slid almost off the cake board!
So next time I will stick with buttercream!
I tinted some icing yellow for the stripes on the pumpkins and some green for the grass.
I placed the big cake on the board and after that I iced the rest of the board with the green icing.
I used the grass tip and put grass around the pumpkins.
I did the 2 small pumpkins the same as the big one.
I used an ice cream cone for the stem on the big pumpkin. And used green icing.
And being heavy with icing, it fell all the way to the bottom so I put 3 of the mini cakes in the hole of the big cake for the cone to rest on. It seemed to work ok.
I also added green leaves. For the small pumpkins I just used icing for the stems.
I used the pre made candy letters and the pre made candy leaves.
