1 or 2, 6 inch cakes (I used 1 carrot cake)
Orange Frosting (I used cream cheese frosting)
Fondant: Plenty of orange, some brown, a little bit of yellow.
Small slanted spatula
knives for carving details
Fondant Leaves >See tutorial-
1. Start off by dividing the cake into two layers. You can make two which will then create 4 layers for a taller pumpkin Then fill the layers with your preferred buttercream.
2. Begin carving small notches off of the top of the cake that are a couple of inches apart. Then carve the bottom of the cake going inward to create a curve as seen in picture 3. From here you can carve more notches into your cake as seen fit, then coat in a thin layer of frosting.Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
