I like baking and being “crafty” and I try and sometimes it works and sometimes it does not but we always have fun trying:) Cake mix is aplenty here so to do something fun and creative the kids and I made pumpkin cakes 🙂 and for the first time I used fondant(note to self when using food coloring with it wear plastic gloves because my hands are still orange lol) it was a lot easier then I expected it to be and the kids loved decorating their pumpkins
First we took small cake pans and baked the cake according to the package directions(we used yellow cake mix)
Then I let them cool and frosted them with chocolate icing.
I died the fondant orange (I used 2 drops of yellow and 2 drops of red food coloring)
and rolled it out
and covered the cakes.
we then made eyes, the nose and mouth using frosting and the kids used candy corn and orange spinkles to decorate the rest(I wanted the kids to make the eyes nose and mouth but they wanted me to do that part)
