3-D Pumpkin Bundt Cake

For Foodie Friday:
Thank you Gollum for hosting Foodie Friday at Designs by Gollum.

For my first Fall food I decided to make a 3-D Pumpkin Bundt Cake. I bought the 3-D Pumpkin Bundt pans from Target, but instead of following the directions on the back I just used a French Vanilla Cake mix with 1/2 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice, 1/2 Tbsp. cinnamon and a grating of fresh nutmeg added to the batter.

I did follow the directions for their glaze though:

2 cups confectioners sugar
2-4 Tbsp. milk
2 Tbsp. light corn syrup
1/2 tsp. vanilla
red & yellow food coloring

Mix together well. It will be thick.

I used half to cement the two mini bundt layers together and the other half to glaze the top. I did have to saw the bump off of each layer so that it matched up level in the middle before I added the glaze to hold them together.

I took green marzipan and rolled two snakes for vines. Then I rolled out some green marzipan and used a mini fall leaf cookie cutter to make the pumpkin leaves.

Here is the finished cake!

I'm not sure it looks more like a pumpkin than a regular Bundt cake, but I had fun and it tasted good! :D Jewel
