A pumpkin cake was the perfect choice for a first birthday party on the thanksgiving weekend! Once again I had to get a little creative in how to make this cake, but it turns out all I needed was a bundt pan!

I baked chocolate cake in two bundt pans and then just stuck them together, one upright and one upside down to make the pumpkin shape! Then it was just a matter of icing the whole thing in orange and adding some green vines and leaves around the cake. To make the stem, I used a mini ice cream cone as the base and piped some chocolate icing with a large star tip to give it the texture it needed. The perfect cake for a little pumpkin turning one!
