Carved Pumpkin Spice Cake Picked Straight From The Patch!
Get The Cakebook!
You might have noticed that I’ve got a thing for fruit cakes (check out my Watermelon Cake and my Pineapple Cake), and I thought this was going to be my first vegetable cake! But no! Apparently a pumpkin is also technically a fruit... I wanted this pumpkin to look dusty and authentic, like I went out to a pumpkin patch and picked it myself. Plus, I didn’t want to make it too smooth. The beauty standards for pumpkins are ridiculous these days. ;)
Note: With large novelty cakes like this, I find it’s simpler (and less draining) to do all your ingredient prep on one day, and all of your decorating on the next day.
