Specialty Pumpkin Cake

This is a specialty pumpkin cake I created for my sister’s birthday.

Pumpkin Shaped Cake

The flavor theme of this cake is hazelnut: Hazelnut cake and hazelnut marble cake with hazelnut buttercream and hazelnut flavored chocolate ganache. The entire cake is covered in orange marzipan and decorated with green marzipan leaves.

Watch the video for more pictures.

UPDATE September 2013:

It is very easy to make your own pumpkin shaped cake.

  • Just bake 2 bundt cakes and stack them – turning one bundt up side down.
  • Fill with icing as desired and cover with any type of orange colored icing. I used marzipan, but orange fondant or orange tinted buttercream will work too.
  • As finishing touches add some green vines, leaves and a stem.

      Aww…I am happy to hear you still remember the cake. It actually was one of the quickest 3D cakes I ever made.
