Let them eat cake!

step by step guide to making a yummy pumpkin birthday cake!

1st find helpers

lots of helpers

the more helpers the better

bake 2 cakes in a bunt pan (I had never used a silicone one before and it was incredible! so very easy to slide the cake out. I didn’t loose a crumb!)

mix yellow and red food coloring until you get orange frosting

shave off the rounded top of the cake and tip the cake upside down and ice it

shave the other cake down, place it on top. ice the heck out of it. put the last layer of icing on in vertical stripes to give it a pumpkin look.

take the shavings and put them in the middle of the pumpkin for a “stem” then add green vines with even more icing!

then “Let them eat cake!”

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PATRICK JAMES!

we love you more and more every day

    Great Cake!! I’m sure Patrick loved it – he’s smiling as usual. I can’t believe what a big boy he is already.
