Pumpkin Patch Cake
From Cook's Country
Bundt pans can be used to create cakes that look like anything from mountains to flowers. We wanted a Pumpkin Patch Cake recipe that looked like a convincing, life-sized pumpkin—but tasted like a cake. We used a bread knife to even out the bottoms of the Bundt cakes, ensuring a more even cake after assembly. And we colored our frosting with only a couple of drops each of yellow and red food coloring, adding more if necessary. We found that too much food coloring created an undesirable, dark orange color.
For this cake, you stack two Bundt cakes, making sure that the flat sides are sandwiched together and the ridges are aligned. Orange buttercream frosting and a cupcake 'stem' are the finishing touches.
