This was fun to make, I used a pumpkin cake recipe which was great served with apple cider! I would recommend refrigerating the frosting for a few minutes before spreading it on the cake, though. The firmer the frosting, the easier it is to work it where you want it. Everyone loved it!

I made this recipe last year and took it to work. We had inventory the night of Halloween. It was a big hit. Very easy to make. I will certainly make it again this year.

Very hard to ice with this type of icing. I have NO idea how to get cream cheese icing so smooth. It does not harden therefore cannot be smoothed. One 2 layer cake mix is not enough. I had the smallest pumpkin. The cone for stem was to small and fell through the middle, even though my pans were standard size, and I used comet cones.

This was so easy to make and looked adorable for my son's Halloween/Birthday party! He is asking for the same cake again for his next birthday. Very simple to do.

This is such a cute cake for the kids, there are a couple of tricks to get it right. alot of people are asking how to get the shape right, i found that if u split the batter bake half and then the other half and turn one half upside down and the other half right side up you get more of the curved shape.. i also added food coloring to the batter to make it orange like the inside of a pumpkin..and last but not least i cut a cup and placed inside the rings to hold the stem, came out very nice..

Besides my frosting ability the cake turned out awesome. another cook had suggested to make the cake rounded on the bottom sprinkle a tad of baking soda on the top of the batter before baking-I did that and it turned out. Thanks for the tip. Will make again.

The idea is easy enough, but the way to make it round on the bottom and top is to use 2! cakes. One BUNDT! cake inverted on top of the other! Once you've got that down, you can go crazy with the decorating.

Try using the pound cake recipe on the side of the cake mix box (you basically add a box of instant pudding and an extra egg). Then, you can flip the cake back over (after it cools) and trim the bottom with an electric or serated knife to make it rounded. Then flip te cake right side up again and frost as shown. Also, I think it might work better with a taller bunt pan and a little extra cake mix.
